Chris “Klondike” Masuak’s musical history reads like a muscle car ride through the mean streets of Australia’s rock and roll underground.
The Canadian-born prodigy achieved teenage notoriety as guitarist for Australia’s legendary RADIO BIRDMAN and then waged a War Against The Jive with that country’s hardest working rock and roll band, THE HITMEN.
Next came a stint with the original (and defining) line-up of THE NEW CHRISTS, followed by international prominence with the chart busting SCREAMING TRIBESMEN.
Klondike has never stood still, exploring his country roots with CHRIS BOY KING AND THE KAMLOOPS SWING, swinging down Texas blues sideroads with THE JUKE SAVAGES, and getting tubular with THE RAOULS.
He was recently inducted, with RADIO BIRDMAN, into the AUSTRALIAN ROCK N ROLL HALL OF FAME.
KLONDIKE came into his own with KLONDIKE'S NORTH 40 and an acclaimed debut album “THE STRAIGHT PATH” on new label I-94 Bar Records.
The follow up release, "WORKHORSE" continued the tradition of unfashionably loud guitar rock and roll with tough tones and terrific tunes.
Now based in Galicia in northern Spain, Klondike continues to record and tour with THE VIVEIRO WAVE RIDERS, and to capture international attention with hit singles like ANOTHER LOST WEEKEND and BRUJITA from the album “BRUJITA” on I94 Bar Records!
International touring entity DOG SOLDIER gathers musicians from all over the globe to celebrate his history and take new music into and over new horizons.
