And on the seventh day – a couple of years ago – TOYAH and her
dear man ROBERT FRIPP (King Crimson) created their Sunday Lunch
Sessions as a fun pastime while being locked up in their kitchen due
to that shit virus.
I wonder how much longer this comic
duo will invade YouTube on Sundays.
Anyway, don’t get fooled again by them, folks…

Meaty, beaty, big and bespoke, MOJO’s latest extravagant special is out
now. A stylishly-groomed volume dedicated to the genius of The Who.
This first issue of Mod Icons focuses on the self-proclaimed Orrible Oo charting
their amazing journey from My Generation’s explosive proto-rock in 1965, right up
to Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey’s successful incarnation of the band today.
In between you’ll find details of their colourful early Pop Art phase, the extraordinary
tales behind their mega-selling concept albums Tommy and Quadrophenia, a touching profile of showboating drummer Keith Moon – who died tragically in 1978 – the little-documented story of the group’s tempestuous 1980s and ’90s, and much more besides.
The magazine’s 132 snappily designed pages, filled with in-depth features and exclusive interviews collected from MOJO’s extensive archives – are illustrated with dozens of rare and iconic photographs, ensuring it’s an essential purchase for all serious music fans.
Talking about their generation with Mojo…
Roger Daltrey, one of the most mediocre frontmen ever (and definitely not the smartest one) of a band that had far more misses than hits and tried to be a rock opera act (and badly failed), ridicules The Stones…

Band: THE WHO
Active: 1964–1983, 1989, 1996–1997, 1999–present
12 studio albums
Birthday album: WHO’S NEXT – 5th LP
Released: 14 August 1971 – 50 years ago today
Rolling Stone: “Who’s Next, regardless of what you may have been led
to believe to the contrary, is neither the soundtrack to the realization of
Pete Townshend‘s apparently-aborted Hollywood dream, the greatest live
album in the history of the universe, nor a, shudder, rock opera, but rather
an old fashioned long-player containing intelligently-conceived, superbly-
performed, brilliantly-produced, and sometimes even exciting rock and roll.”
Turn Up The Volume: For me, it’s the album with two of their A-number-1
singles (see/hear below) and the stirring ballads The Song Is Over and Behind
Blue Eyes on.
Singles: Baba O’Riley / Won’t Get Fooled Again
– BABA O’RILEY –
– WON’T GET FOOLED AGAIN –

No, I’m not getting tired whatsoever of Toyah and Robert and Sydney.
As long as they continue their hilarious Sunday Lunch Cover Sessions the
way they do now for months and months I’ll be in the front row.
I’m sure you can bet every week, somewhere on the Internet,
on which song the trio will splash and smash.
This Sunday the YT stars only wanted to talk about their generation.
Toyah looked like an adult teenage doll showing her sensation(s) exclusively
to Robert and in the end, she smashed the camera, à la Pete Townshend,
with her (not so) giant guitar.
Don’t try to put Toyah d-d-d-own…
The original stutter…
Great posters from music movies from the past…
