They’ve pulled out all the stops for this one.
19/04/2021 at 08:38
Eroticism and rhotacism in one.
20/04/2021 at 02:25
🤣 What does rhotacism mean?
20/04/2021 at 03:23
Inability to sound your Rs.
20/04/2021 at 03:30
They had to start it with an R? What’ll they fink up next?
19/04/2021 at 08:45
Is the at the ghost of Boz Burrell peeking out from behind Toyah’s left shoulder?
19/04/2021 at 08:54
I knew pubs opening on Sunday lunchtime was a bad idea.

They must love each other very much
19/04/2021 at 12:23
Has Toyah ever produced one note of “music” that has genuine worth? I believe not.
19/04/2021 at 12:34
It’s a mystery.
20/04/2021 at 01:47
Or even a mythtery ..
19/04/2021 at 12:26
On one hand, that was a cover we didn’t need. On the other hand, there was a need for a couple of covers.
Question. Is Toyah very pleased with her new boobs or what?

Do you think that’s wise, sir?
19/04/2021 at 13:55
A Sunday lunch with a bubble machine and a wind machine. No expense spared indeed!
They’ve made me laugh quite a few times during a grey, boring, laughless year.
It’s like watching two of your pals mucking about at a party, Good luck to them!
19/04/2021 at 17:13
You know both of them?
And Robert too?
Uncle Wheaty says
19/04/2021 at 19:36
I refer you to the earlier posts where her breasts were well defined and we agreed that it was sexist to make further comments on such things.
21/04/2021 at 05:57
Let’s try and avoid another bust up over this.
Diddley Farquar says
21/04/2021 at 08:45
I’d just like to offer my full support.
21/04/2021 at 16:44
Comments like that just get on my tits.
21/04/2021 at 16:51
Stop it you lot, or you’ll have to be separated…. and lifted.
19/04/2021 at 14:58
She comes in a beat early after “hey hey hey that’s what I say” and Robert doesn’t – er, miss a beat
19/04/2021 at 15:06
I think their early videos had some charm. I think we’re now firmly in more tacky “look at me” territory.
19/04/2021 at 16:02
The sad thing is, it’s working
19/04/2021 at 17:03
More a case of “look at us”…
Vulpes Vulpes says
20/04/2021 at 18:06
Don’t you mean “look at these”?
21/04/2021 at 16:10
Think my contribution had more of a double entendre feel about it
20/04/2021 at 10:35
You’re right, Fortune. The charm is fading.
Best to say a graceful farewell now.
19/04/2021 at 16:04
Speaking for the more broadminded and salacious contributor to this page, I am very grateful for these clips, which make a middle-aged man feel a little younger. Robert Fripp is a lucky man to have such a playful wife. She may have been rather forced in her stage school “I’m a punk, me” years, but she’s a game girl, for sure.
19/04/2021 at 18:09
At least it wasn’t that other Satisfaction. There could have been power tools and oiled up flesh vibrating and wobbling.
19/04/2021 at 19:08
You’ve got to admire Robert Fripp taking it on the chin while his wife tells the world that she can’t get no satisfaction.
19/04/2021 at 19:16
I feel there’s a “hurr” in there somewhere.
19/04/2021 at 20:54
Thund-hurr in the mountains.
19/04/2021 at 20:52
Jings, is she unwell? It isn’t quite right, I feel, however fuddy duddy that may read. I remember everyone gawping at a friend wife’s embonpoint as she seemed to be unaware of them bouncing around and laughing at it all. The hypomania was followed by the worst depressive relapse she had ever had. It was scary. Of course, she may just have no inhibitions at all, which might have me more concerned about her fronto-temporal regions. If Robert was dancing with his willy out, would that be dealt with such benign acceptance/affection. I give it 3 weeks before she’s flashing her monkey, poor soul.
19/04/2021 at 20:55
Not so much “everything swinging” as “upswinging”, innit?
20/04/2021 at 00:13
I wonder if I am in a minority here but pretty much everything – and I mean everything – about that is simply horrendous.
20/04/2021 at 00:33
No, you aren’t, though I was more offended by the noise than the embonpoint.
20/04/2021 at 00:49
I had to look up that word!
That was horrendous.
Can’t fathom how some folk could find that…. attractive?
20/04/2021 at 01:50
I have others… 😉
20/04/2021 at 06:35
I’m not sure anyone does!
21/04/2021 at 16:55
It’s French for tits.
I know this as a keyword from ancient experience of “flicking through novels trying to find a dirty bit to have a wallop at”.
Other examples include “huge”, “panting, “heaving” and “globes”. Unfortunately this often leads to reading passages about shot-putters…. but hey-ho, any port in a storm.

Grand Teton Range in Wyoming.
The first Anglo-American to see the saw-edged Teton peaks is believed to be John Colter. … Other adventurers followed in Colter’s footsteps, including the French-Canadian trappers who gave the mountain range the bawdy name of “Grand Tetons,” meaning “big breasts” in French.
21/04/2021 at 18:35
We had our honeymoon near the Pap of Glencoe.
Whoever named that probably needs to get about a bit more. The resemblance is not striking.
21/04/2021 at 21:11

22/04/2021 at 16:29
There may have been more sheep paps around than women, I wonder.
20/04/2021 at 06:53
As the outfits get more revealing, as the weeks go by, is the next stage bodypaint for Ms Fripp?
Possibly intended as a distraction from her awful singing, but it’s not really working and I’m beginning to wonder if Robert is only co-operating because he’s scared of his missus.
20/04/2021 at 08:46
If this teeth-grinding collaboration lasts beyond lockdown, perhaps our Rob could consider calling their band Stockholm Syndrome
Did you see their appearance on Celebrity Mr and Mrs, Mike?
Toyah, when Robert and you are walking hand in hand down the street, does Robert walk on the road side of the pavement some of the time, all of the time or none of the time?
I actually made that question up, but you get the gist.
Poor ord Derek Batey would be revolving in his grave at such a rapid rate of knots he’d be halfway to China
20/04/2021 at 09:48
Apparently Pete Sinfield wrote their wedding vows.
20/04/2021 at 10:40
The unmistakable cadence of poo followed by a golden cascade of pee
20/04/2021 at 15:12
Fripp has the haunted look of one of those cuckold husbands who lurk furtively on the shadowy fringes of the frame in Xhamster videos that I do not watch.
20/04/2021 at 18:09
I think it’s something to do with the run-off from the fields getting into the water supply.
20/04/2021 at 19:17
So the answer lies in the soil?
Nick L says
21/04/2021 at 14:42
I can’t really take Toyah that seriously (actually, did anyone ever?) since listening to Taylor Parkes’ thoroughly comprehensive and vicious but accurate put down of her on the Chart Music podcast. However I have enjoyed a couple of these videos it does look like the joke may have run a bit thin now…
21/04/2021 at 20:04
Same. Toyah and B.A. ****erson are permanently tied to the Chart Music whipping post.
22/04/2021 at 11:02
Oh yes, I’d forgotten about poor old B.A. C***erson! Was never a huge fan (think I had one single) but was he really all that annoying to attract that level of bile? A bit embarrassing in hindsight perhaps mind. Anyone seen his early-eighties interview with Alan Horne and Edwyn Collins on youtube? Toe-curling stuff…
22/04/2021 at 11:04
I think it was his tenure as a presenter that got up the collective nostrils. His records actually weren’t bad.
21/04/2021 at 16:48
Musically vacuous and Fripp really should know better. However they have been married a very long time so I am pretty sure Toyah has something he likes.
21/04/2021 at 16:56
How many years? I daren’t look it up, as it’s taken me all that time to come up with my Pete Sinfield joke.
Worth the wait though, I trust you’ll agree.
Black Type says
21/04/2021 at 17:28
Christ, I can’t believe some of the comments on here, suggesting that Fripp ‘should know better’ or is in some way bewitched or coerced into this. Thought I’d happened upon the Daily Mail Harry and Meghan comments section 🤨. How about Fripp just loving his wife and enjoying having a bit of a laugh with her?
21/04/2021 at 18:28
I bet they read reactions on the interthingy and roll about in a mirthful fashion.
21/04/2021 at 18:49
The idea persists that the ability to play the guitar well confers on a guitarist universal saintly wisdom and pristine judgment. I bet even John McLaughlin puts a pair of pants in the sock drawer every now and then.
Sewer Robot says
21/04/2021 at 19:31
Maybe The Glock jumps in with his pants still on to emerge Hong Kong Phooey style from another drawer dressed for the stage..?
🎵He’s got style, a groovy style and songs that just don’t stop..🎵
21/04/2021 at 19:40
It’s probably too late, alas, but I’ve always felt that if they did a live action version, Hong Kong Phooey should be played by Robert Lindsay.
21/04/2021 at 20:55
Not being the obvious Toyah fan, I kinda like her, and I could name right now about 10,000 people I like less… and I adore, that’s “adore,” Giles, Giles and Fripp.
Anyway, no cover version has ever been worse than the Sainted Dave’s Let’s Spend the Night Together (effortlessly the worst cover ever) so at least she’s got that to… erm… cover her.
Watched it again… the original is about a thousand times more punk… how did that happen? Still like her.
22/04/2021 at 05:35
I dont have a problem with her either. The videos are a bit of harmless fun and I dont see they are doing any harm. It’s not like they are commercially for sale.
22/04/2021 at 16:23
Also a big fan of Giles, Giles And Fripp here – do you like The Brain as well? I actually like that stuff more than Crimso.
22/04/2021 at 06:06
Have any of the posters who’ve made jokes at TW and RF’s expense gone beyond having
harmless fun themselves?
If you’re a public figure and you post on the internet, having the piss taken out of you is pretty much inevitable.
22/04/2021 at 12:42
Sadly you are right. Doesn’t have to be but it is.
22/04/2021 at 14:32
I think what’s most shocking about these videos is just how fucking dreadful they sound.
Sophie Ellis-Bextor’s kitchen looked and sounded a whole lot more fun than this ghastly racket.
22/04/2021 at 15:28
Is Fripp recording them deliberately badly so that Steven Wilson can sort them out later?
22/04/2021 at 16:26
A mate of mine used to be acquainted with Peter Giles – he said his (Pete’s) volubly-expressed opinions on the subject of Fripp were, shall we say, something to behold. Not complimentary.
As for Toyah, I’ve had a soft spot for the mad old thing ever since my teenage years, when literally *everyone* in the school playground used to do “It’th A Mythewy” at each other. Kids are feral bastards, really.
