In 1994 my brother Geoff Mazzer and 10 other miners were underground in Moura Mine Number 2, when a massive gas explosion occurred. Due to the dangerous conditions, rescue crews could not go in, and the entrance to the mine was closed permanently leaving those eleven miners entombed forever.
Marco served almost a decade in the Queensland Police Force, attaining the rank of Detective Senior Constable before leaving. He was a naïve country lad, and begins this performance with a brief story of how he became a copper. Marco then performs 'Pay Day' a serious true crime story/poem in memory of a murder victim Earnest Norton Barnard 87 years of age, murdered in Innisfail, North Queensland.
