Personal File: Mantronix

Tom Doyle, Smash Hits, 30 May 1990

FULL NAME: Kurtis Mantronik. I changed it to that because I was having problems with my real name. I had a Syrian surname and I used to get hassled at customs all the time. What was it? I don't want to go back to that, man. (It was in fact Kurtis Kahleel.) I have a Jamaican passport, I live in America and I had a Syrian last name. That's hassle.
