No Sunday Lunch without oddballs Toyah and Robert.
No 7th day of the week without their spunky presence.
No rest for the musical kitchen kooks.
And today, with assistance of guitarist Simon Darlow the
husband/wife duo admits that they’re slaves to the rhythm.
Here we go…

TOYAH, her husband (King Crimson legend) ROBERT FRIPP
and mysterious friend Sydney just can’t stop playing and
acting crazy and madly every week with their Sunday Lunch
This week’s choice of 1999 roller coaster Chop Suey by metallic
junks System Of A Down isn’t an obvious one but gives them
another opportunity to go totally nuts.

TOYAH, her husband/soulmate/King Crimson legend ROBERT FRIPP
and their friend Sydney took a couple of weeks off from entertaining
thousands of us with their comical Sunday Lunch Cover Sessions on
YouTube. But their back now with their kitchen craziness.
“The kitchen trio are back having traveled the world and the seven seas.
Don’t miss this one, sure to provide sweet dreams.” said Toyah before
Let’s start the show…
TOYAH and her husband/soulmate ROBERT FRIPP and
their friend Sydney are unstoppable. They go nuts every
week in their little kitchen – since April 2020 – with their
hilarious Sunday Lunch cover sessions.
It was a special Sunday yesterday, as Robert Fripp
celebrated his 75th birthday. The King Crimson legend
was born in Wimborne Minster, Dorset, UK on 16 May 1946.
Yoohoo! Bring on the cake!
That’s probably why the two YouTube stars
picked Steppenwolf‘s classic cracker from
1968: Born To Be Wild.
Another kooky Toyah/Robert performance. Time to get wet…
The timeless original…

Nothing or nobody can stop TOYAH, her husband/soulmate ROBERT
FRIPP and friend Sydney from going loco every week – since April 2020 –
with their Sunday Lunch cover sessions.
This time they picked a not-so-obvious, but fitting, cracker from British
electro bulldozers The Prodigy. Again their hilarious performance will
put a big smile on your face.
Start the fire here and go loco too…

TOYAH and partner ROBERT FRIPP can’t stop
having fun at home with their weekly Sunday
Lunch cover sessions (since April 2020).
This time Toyah dressed as a mermaid for a version of
Barracuda, a big hit for Seatlle rockers Heart back in 1977.
Listen, watch and have fun…
26 April 2021
TOYAH and helpmate ROBERT FRIPP keep on bubbling in their
home bubble. Their weekly Sunday Lunch cover sessions (since
April 2020) are spreading on the Internet like a benign rock virus.
Yesterday they turned SILVERMACHINE, the 1972 classic
space rocker by British psych outlaws HAWKIND featuring
the late great Lemmy, upside down.
Let the bubbles fly Toyah…
19 April 2021
You just can’t stop TOYAH WILLCOX and her husband ROBERT FRIPP
from having a ball every Sunday around lunchtime. Their weekly cover
sessions (since April 2020) made them huge YouTube stars.
But yesterday the comic couple couldn’t get satisfaction…
The rollin’ original…
9 April 2021
Countless artists (and many will follow in the near future, I guess) went on to cover
their favorite songs of their favorite artists, at home, to kill the time and keeping in
touch with their fans during these awful freedom-and-tour-limiting lockdown and quarantine times (OMG, already more than a year now).
The indisputable cover stars are TOYAH WILLCOX (8 top 40 hits and over
more than 20 LPs) and her husband ROBERT FRIPP (best known as a pivotal
member of legendary prog-rock band King Crimson).
A year ago they started their weekly Sunday Lunch cover sessions.
Toyah told NME: “Here I am in this house with this 74-year-old husband who I really
don’t want to live without. He was withdrawing, so I thought: ‘I’m going to teach him to
dance.’ And it became a challenge. I do the lighting, the filming, the conceptual side and
the persuading Robert to take part.”
What we got/get every week is just brilliant. Musical comedy at its hilarious best with Robert mostly, while playing guitar, looking at his utterly cool and most inventive wife
while she changes crazy outfits every week and screams her lungs out. Thousands
and thousands of people – including me – laugh their socks off every single Sunday
they hit YouTube.
As the show is now going on for about a year Turn Up The Volume selected his
5 favorite performances starting with their insanely amusing little dance to
the Swan Lake Theme. Here we go again… (l)aughing (o)ut (l)oud!
– SWAN LAKE –
– PARANOID – Black Sabbath
– ANARCHY IN THE UK – Sex Pistols
– GIMME ALL YOUR LOVIN’ – ZZ Top
– BLACK DOG – Led Zeppelin
Keep on rockin’ in the free world, Toyah & Robert. You’re the best!
