Watch Robert Fripp and Toyah Willcox’s wild cover of Motörhead’s Ace Of Spades

Robert and Toyah cover Motörhead’s classic Ace Of Spades in the latest instalment of their Sunday Lunch lockdown series.

King Crimsons Robert Fripp and Toyah Willcox are keeping things old school in the latest instalment of their always-entertaining Sunday Lunch lockdown series, tackling a wildly fun cover of Motörheads Ace Of Spades (following last week’s high-energy rendition of Mötley Crüe’s Girls, Girls, Girls).

As a French maid outfit-wearing Toyah shuffles a deck of cards and throws them around their kitchen in front of a fan while singing the 1980 classic single, her husband happily shreds away beside her – even continuing to play after several cards amusingly hit him in the face. They really are pros at this by now, eh?

Quiz: How well do you know Motörhead’s lyrics?

The Ace Of Spades cover arrives ahead of the release of Motörhead’s upcoming 14th live album, Louder Than Noise… Live In Berlin, which is due out on April 23 via Silver Lining Music.

In an interview from the Kerrang! archives, Lemmy said of the Ace Of Spades album artwork, That sleeve was Phil’s idea, he thought of cowboys. I wouldn’t have gone for it, but everyone went, Yeah, great idea’ and I was going, That’s terrible – fucking John Wayne?!’ But it worked out really well. It was taken in a quarry near Barnet in London. And the sky’s real. It’s not touched up, it was that blue.”
