When the live performance trade shut down in 2020, two musical heroes emerged to entertain us every week. The married couple of King Crimson guitarist Robert Fripp and new wave singer Toyah Willcox blessed us with their “Sunday Lunch” sequence of canopy songs, and the world has by no means been the identical.
Whereas lockdown had us, er, down, the frisky pair stored our spirits up, delivering enjoyable renditions of iconic rock and metallic songs (largely from the kitchen of their UK dwelling), full with Toyah’s risqué outfits and Robert’s no-nonsense guitar taking part in (even when he has to look in a foolish get-up himself every so often).
And although the world has opened again up, the couple continues to entertain us every week with new “Sunday Lunch” performances. The YouTube sequence has changed into such a phenomenon that Toyah and Robert are taking the present on the street, reserving a UK tour within the fall of 2023.

Whereas the playful pair’s rendition of ZZ Prime’s “Sharp Dressed Man” was a deal with for followers, it proved to be an excellent greater deal with for Robert, who received an eyeful when Toyah full-on flashed him all through the efficiency. It even received the couple’s mysterious guitarist Sidney Jake to ask, “Do your dad and mom behave like this?”
