Rolling Stone: King Crimson Tour Can’t Stop You Tube Series

August 10th, 2021

A King Crimson Tour Can’t Stop Robert Fripp and Toyah Willcox’s YouTube Cover Series

Willcox performs the Divinyls’ “I Touch Myself” for her husband in latest clip

King Crimson may be currently on tour, but that hasn’t stopped Robert Fripp and Toyah Willcox from continuing their YouTube series Sunday Lunch.

The latest episode features a cover of the Divinyls’ “I Touch Myself.” Willcox greets Fripp remotely — “Hello baby, I’m keeping the bed warm for you” — before diving into the 1990 hit. She seductively rides an exercise bike while Fripp gives comments of approval, from “hubba hubba!” to “wild!”

Since kicking off Sunday Lunch amid the pandemic, the couple has covered everything from the Stones’ “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction” to Britney Spears’ “Toxic” to Hawkwind’s “Silver Machine.”

Rolling Stone: Robert Fripp and Toyah Willcox Interview

March 25th, 2021

Robert Fripp and Toyah Willcox on Their Viral Quarantine Videos: ‘We’re in This With You’

King Crimson’s guitarist and his pop-star wife on what inspired them to cover everything from “Enter Sandman” to “Girls, Girls, Girls,” and what everyone got wrong about their ‘Swan Lake’ tutu dance

“My wife is a force of nature and my wife leads the way,” Robert Fripp says of his partner and quarantine-video collaborator Toyah Willcox.

On April 5th, 2020, music fans stuck in their homes and cruising the web for diversions were greeted with one of the most unusual sights in a season filled with them: King Crimson auteur Robert Fripp and his wife, singer and actress Toyah Willcox, both elegantly dressed and dancing to Bill Haley and the Comets’ early rock anthem “Rock Around the Clock.”

Filmed on Willcox’s iPhone in the kitchen of the couple’s home near Birmingham, England, the head-scratching clip launched one of the year’s least likely and most talked-about viral series. Every Sunday since, “Toyah and Robert’s Sunday Lunch” (sometimes called a “Lockdown Lunch”) has presented a new clip of the couple having quick, good-natured fun at home. The ever-upbeat Willcox sings and vamps (while wearing a variety of costumes, from workout suit to cheerleader costume) while a deadpan Fripp accompanies her on electric guitar.

Rolling Stone: 25 Greatest Punk Rock Movies of All Time

10. ‘Jubilee’ (1978)

It’s been called “the first punk film,” but Derek Jarman’s 1978 feature turns the subculture’s oppositional stance back on itself: It’s like a guerrilla Shakespeare production staged in a mosh pit. While the Sex Pistols sneered at Queen Elizabeth II, Jarman cast his lot with the original Her Majesty E., who travels through time to a dystopian Britain ruled by roving gangs. Appearances by Adam Ant, the Slits and Siouxsie and the Banshees, along with U.S. trans icon Jayne County, ground it in the moment, but Jarman’s suggestion that even the most vocal nihilists would sell out their ideals — if given enough encouragement, naturally — provided a glimpse of the future.
