Four years after his debut solo band album, ex-Radio Birdman guitarist Chris “Klondike” Masuak is back with another even more lethal dose of highpowered rock and roll.

Workhorse is a stunning statement, a blues-wailing, guitar-soaked testament to Masuak’s standing as one of Australia’s most talented guitarists.

Its 14 tracks span a dizzying gamut of sounds, from the Eastern cadences of ‘She’s Gone Away’ to the rousing pop of ‘Hey Girl’ and the incandescent hard rock of ‘Intoxication’, this is the sort of album too few bands make any more - it’s soaked in guitars.

Its also a tribute to the late sound engineer Greg Clarke (Billy Thorpe, Rose Tattoo) who co-produced Workhorse, passed away just days after completing the final mixes.

Masuak is now based in Spain but is returning for select shows with his band The North 40, as well as a run of shows with the Screaming Tribesmen, whose Masuak-era releases have just been released on two CDs (Date With a Vampyre/Top of the Town - GUW!CD003 and Bones & Flowers” - GUW!CD004).

‘Is there a better blues-based rock guitar player on the planet than this Ukranian- Canadian-Australian, currently hanging his hat in Spain? I think not. Impeccable tone, clean attack, monstrous vibrato – Klondike’s got it all. - Ken Shimamoto.
