While on an American tour last year, Australian DJ and video remix artist Nick Bertke (Pogo) ran afoul of US visa rules and was jailed and deported from the country. He is now subject to a 10 year ban from the United States. His fans are now petitioning the White House to get Bertke’s ban lifted so he can return to the US. We’ve posted Bertke’s work many times over the years.
