K.B. (Kevin) Broc
Jay Scott King
(bass; replaced Beakhouse)
Based in Edmonton, Big House featured Throndson and Ek from punk outfit Down Syndrome. They left that band in 1987 and brought in Beakhouse and Broc to round out the line-up.
The signed a deal with Boomtown Records in 1990 which landed them distribution for a four song EP called "Pretty Things" with BMG.
They then released an album for the label in 1991. It was partially recorded at Prince's Paisley Park Studio in Minnesota.
Beakhouse was replaced by King (an American formerly of Back Street Kids) shortly after the release of the album.
With the radio success of several singles, tours on bills with big name metal acts gave the band exposure but, alas they split up before making it to album #2.
After leaving Big House, Beakhouse then did a stint playing bass for the Headstones just before their first album and fronted Screamcone which featured Dave Kiner of renowned Toronto thrash metal act Malhavoc on bass.
