In their now-traditional weekly broadcast to the world, Toyah Willcox and Robert Fripp have covered The Who's 1971 classic Won't Get Fooled Again

After last week's brief excursion towards pop music, in which the duo rustled up a lively cover of Michael Jackson's Give In To Me, we're back on more familiar territory today, with a return to rock and Fripp's apparent mastery of Pete Townshend's iconic riff.

But wait. A blooper reel appended to the end of the song shows Fripp struggling with the song, and the pair punctuating repeated failed attempts by uttering the word "bollocks" in frustration. Oh, what fun they must have!
