So, I.R.O.K. – otherwise known as The Intergalactic Republic Of Kongo – are a "violent psychotropic afro-punk" outfit. We're not really sure what that means, but it's on their Facebook, and no one ever tells lies on the internet, so it must be true. They just sent us a short video they made with the filmmaker Jose Otero of their recent Moroccan tour.
The film features them playing strange shows in places you've never heard of, like on beaches in Mirleft, a local theatre in some place called Tiznet, and the local town square in the medieval village of Ain Ouled Jarrar. Tottenham it isn't.
