(((POWERHOUSE SOUND))) was formed in 2005, originally with KEN VANDERMARK on tenor sax, INGEBRIGT HAKER FLATEN & NATE McBRIDE on basses, LASSE MARHAUG on electronics and on drums. For (((PHS)))'s double-cd debut OSLO/CHICAGO: BREAKS, Vandermark composed tracks with the idea of building the music from the perspective of the bass- instead of the more conventional 'top down' approach of composition construction, as he puts it. 'The three major influences I considered when putting the music together were the rhythmic ideas of James Brown, the dub ideas of Lee Perry, and the collage ideas of Public Enemy.' The Chicago-based touring line up, featuring VANDERMARK, McBRIDE, JEFF PARKER & JOHN HERNDON (both of TORTOISE) continue to work from these original concepts developed at the band's inception... Yet (((POWERHOUSE SOUND))) is undoubtedly here to test any and all genre 'qualifiers' used within the independent music industry today!
