Robert Fripp and Toyah Willcox “as you have never seen them before” cover Firestarter
King Crimson’s Robert Fripp and Toyah Willcox have never shied away from going all-out for their Sunday Lunch lockdown covers – but they warn that their latest instalment in the series “cannot be unseen”.
The couple – joined once again by Sidney Jake – have taken on The Prodigy’s classic Firestarter this time around, sporting wild looks to accompany the explosive 1996 Fat Of The Land single.
Rather than donning his usual fancy suits the King Crimson man is wearing a Lamb Of God shirt and eye make-up, while Toyah is covered in body paint and has a brilliantly bold spiked-up hairdo. Behind them, a print that reads ‘Keith’ with a big red heart pays tribute to the late Prodigy frontman.
“You are about to see our favourite kitchen trio as you have never seen them before and it cannot be unseen,” they warn at the start of the video, while Toyah reveals at the end of the clip that the masked-up Sidney is actually George Clooney. At this point, we almost believe it…
A mural of The Prodigy frontman Keith Flint has appeared in Hackney.
Another fragile dose of new Sleep Token ahead of their album next week.
