The 5 Best Moments (So Far) Of Hilarious Lockdown Stars TOYAH And ROBERT

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!

The Continuing Cover Story Of TOYAH And ROBERT

16 March 2021

TOYAH WILLCOX and her husband ROBERT FRIPP keep on rocking
in the free world on their weekly Sunday Cover Lunch Sessions and get
more and more fans along the way.

This time, the by now perfectly well-oiled tandem entertains thousands
and thousands of us, from their home, with a spicy cover of sexy ripper
Girls Girls Girls by glam metal band Mötley Crüe (still alive and kicking).

Again it’s slapstick fun from start to finish with
Toyah practicing for the coming US Open.

Point, set, game

than 20 LPs) continue their weekly Sunday lunch cover sessions. And it’s getting
better and better.

This time they want to set Britney Spears
free with her mega 2003 hit Toxic.

Robert is looking at Toyah – sexy as hell – as if he sees the classic
movie Clockwork Orange for the very first time. I love it, I love it!

Don’t miss the Britney message and
blooper in the end! JUST HILARIOUS!

I’m addicted to you
Don’t you know that you’re toxic?
And I love what you do
Don’t you know that you’re toxic?…

Crazy Couple ROBERT FRIPP & TOYAH Keeps On Rocking And Covering At Home

9 February 2021

Robert Fripp (best know as member of legendary prog rock band King Crimson)
and his equally famous British wife TOYAH WILLCOX (8 top 40 hits and over more
than 20 LPs) are entertaining us every week, for a while now, with covering classic
crackers.

Last week they fabricated a rambling cover of Joan Jett’s I Love Rock ‘n’ Roll, and
now they show their love for the late great guitar genius Jimi Hendrix. The couple’s rendition of his awesome 1967 killer Purple Haze is – as we are already used to by
now – crazy, creaking and squeaking, screamy and noisy, and big fun to watch.

Excuse me while I kiss the sky
