King Crimson are on tour, but the Willcox-Fripp kitchen cover chaos continues

The question that's been on everyone lips has finally been answered. What will happen to Toyah Willcox and Robert Fripp's Sunday Lunch performance videos when the King Crimson maestro goes on tour? 

The answer? It's business as usual. With King Crimson currently in Florida as their Music Is Our Friend tour winds its way around the southern states, the Willcox-Fripp video release schedule remains unaltered. It appears that the cheeky duo have stockpiled episodes of their ongoing web series Yes, This Is Great And Everything But They Should Really Do Bark At The Moon By Ozzy Osbourne, and a frisky cover of The Who's 1965 classic My Generation ensures that continuity is preserved.

And it really is business as usual. Robert riffs, Toyah leaps around like a fevered marionette, and mysterious guitarist Sidney Jake still remains mysterious. It's almost like they've found a successful formula and are sticking to it.
