Recently, a kind reader from Switzerland sent me a package with a nice selection of demo tapes and CDs in the mail, and within that box was both Powerhouse demos. Yes, there was another Powerhouse from Florida, but this Powerhouse was from Oakland, CA. They played NYHC style hardcore, but gave it their own West Coast spin. Playing throughout the Northwest a lot in the mid-late 90s, my friends and I always enjoyed when they would come up here, as they put on a great show. Also of note is that Powerhouse's bass player, Ernie Cortez, passed away a few years back. He was always an incredibly nice guy, and he is sorely missed by many.
All that being said, here is Powerhouse's first demo from 1994.
