Grok are an improvisational group based in East London. Their sound incorporates post-rock guitars, melodic bass, responsive rhythms and atmospheric electronics.
This month’s film is Tod Browning’s THE UNKNOWN.
On the run from the law, Alonzo hides in the circus as The Armless Wonder — a performer who uses his feet to hurl knives. Alonzo actually has the use of his arms but keeps them concealed so that his true identity remains under wraps. Meanwhile, Alonzo falls in love with another performer, Nanon, who has a phobia against being touched by a man. But when the circus owner discovers Alonzo’s true identity, the performer makes a tragic decision.
