“This week is a belter, and we at team Toyah And Robert have slipped in some classic bloopers that were too good to leave out!!!” they stated.
Toyah and Robert had been interviewed by Rolling Stone in 2020, and supplied some fascinating perception into their creation of this weekly video collection. Asked why they began the collection, Wilcox responded “This whole thing about being in lockdown was people were stopping moving, and our generation must move.”
Fripp added “Mine is a slightly more nuanced view of this. My wife has been insistent. Performers have a responsibility to perform and at this particular time to keep people’s spirits up. This is a very English cultural tradition. Essentially, when things are really bad in England, what you do is begin laughing and do silly things. A good reference point is the Ministry of Silly Walks on Monty Python. Now it’s, “Robert places on a tutu and dances to Swan Lake on the river’s edge together with his spouse. So I’ve adopted my spouse’s sense and imaginative and prescient of this stuff.”
Toyah revealed she presents Robert with a list of songs and he picks one he feels he can pull off. Fripp says “I take a look at the difficult technical features. Can I play it on guitar? Is one guitar enough to assist my spouse? Can I honor the music? If it is an orchestral ballad, it is not likely going to be a go.”

Willcox told NME previously that she started the series to occupy Fripp, who was getting really bummed out about not being able to tour. “Here I’m on this home with this 74-year-old husband who I actually do not wish to reside with out,” she said. “He was withdrawing, so I believed: ‘I’m going to show him to bop.’ And it turned a problem. I do the lighting, the filming, the conceptual facet and the persuading Robert to participate.”
