Although Toyah Willcox and Robert Fripp you are warned that their latest show “Sunday Lunch” is “invisible,” as did the favorite rock couple The Prodigy“Firestarter” has been hit. And they’re not kidding – one of them will burn in your memory for a while.
The video begins this with the warning: “You’ll find our favorite kitchen cabinets you haven’t seen before and you won’t see it.” Again joined by the mysterious guitarist “Sidney Jake”, both Toyah and Robert pay homage not only to the electro-rock anthem but also to the look of The Prodigy, specifically that of the band. late singer Keith Flint (a sign with the name “Keith” and a heart can be seen on a kitchen counter in the back).
Toyah wore black eye makeup and a pierced hair while covered from neck to waist with flaming body paint, with an almost non-existent fabric covering her. Meanwhile, Fripp seems to have exchanged “Sidney Jake” wardrobes. the King Crimson The builder is usually seen in a button down shirt, vest, and tie, but this time sporting a Lamb of God t-shirt, not to mention a new hairstyle that will hold and shadow eye makeup. Mr. Jake, on the other hand, avoided the usual metal tee on that shirt, vest, and tie that Fripp always wore.
From there, it’s a loud performance to see Toyah walking around and boiling a pot as she sings lines like, “I’m the girl you hate / Dirty is dirty, yes / I’m the pain you tasted / Fell drunk. “
At the end of the show, the couple has a chuckle, as Toyah reveals that the mysterious and masked “Sidney Jake” is actually George Clooney. However, we think the prophecies will continue to come.
The music selection is a bit of a departure from the usual hard rock and metal classics that Robert and Toyah deliver in their weekly quarantine series. They first went super viral at the start of 2021 with that cover Metallica’s “Enter Sandman”, which shows Toyah riding an exercise bike while wearing an undergarment. Other shows saw Toyah wearing a French maid getup (The Motor Ace “Ace of Spades), a costume cheerleader (“Rebel Yell” by Billy Idol), and a bad nurse’s uniform (Alice Cooper’s “Poison”).
Toyah, who had some recent hits on the UK wave in the ’80s, was unfamiliar with body paint, as he also went the route for the“ Sunday Lunch ”performances at The “Happiness” of the Rolling Stones and The Hawkwind “Silver Machine”. Last week, she appeared as a mermaid for a cover Heart’s “Barracuda”.
And speaking of the “invisible” performances, Toyah and Robert’s wild plot of “Paranoid” will be the lead to be told by Black Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi Severe consequences, “I think this lockdown brought to their attention.”
