How's your Sunday going? Having a satisfying sabbath? Truthfully, chances are that you're not having as much fun as Toyah and Robert Fripp, but that's okay, because literally no-one on the planet has as much fun on Sundays as Toyah and her beau, and frankly comparing your own happiness to the thermonuclear levels of joy enjoyed by Britain's most loved-up couple is a losing game, best avoided.

Having launched 2023 with an effervescent cover of The Offspring's The Kids Aren’t Alright, and followed this by donning leather and latex to share a spicy re-imagining of Toyah's own Latex Messiah (Viva La Rebel In You), the duo went all-out last week, covering Kiss' disco-metal stomper I Was Was Made For Lovin' You, with Toyah delivering her performance inside an inflatable pink unicorn costume. Look, we told you not to compare your life to Toyah's, it really will do you no good, honestly. 

And this week? Well, this week involves a red latex catsuit and sunglasses (Toyah), a rather fetching pink wig (Robert), a wind machine (shared) and a blast through Shout At The Devil, the title track of Mötley Crüe's 1983 breakthrough album. 

We'll leave you to it...
