Mario Piu & Warp Brothers Fail Australia's Passport Controls
Monday, October 8, 2001Increased security measures imposed after the World Trade Center bombs prevented both Mario Piu and The Warp Brothers from flying into Australia this week, after apparent visa irregularities emerged. According to new Australian dance portal residentadviser.com.au, Piu lost his passport and visa somewhere in transit between Italy and London. He had been due to spin at the Slinky parties around Australia, though reportedly discovered he didn't have a 'chance in Hell' of getting into the country without a passport.
Acid techno popsters The Warp Brothers also pulled out of an imminent Australian tour this week, again due to visa complications. The Scottish funsters will definitely not be making their forthcoming Brisbane show and their entire Australian tour is reported to be under threat. For more information, check the site below.
