The internet's favourite husband-and-wife entertainers Toyah Willcox and Robert Fripp have done it again. This weekend's Sunday Lunch recital finds the couple at home as usual, taking The Cramps' 1985 smash Can Your Pussy Do The Dog? and turning it into something its original writers Ivy Rorschach and Lux Interior surely never intended. 

To confound reality further, King Crimson man Fripp and post-punk popstrel Willcox have augmented their performances with costume. Willcox plays the cat, while Fripp has been made up to look like a dog, complete with a pair of suspiciously pert ears. And, as if that weren't enough excitement for one weekend, Fripp also throws in a frustrated example of his oft-used "bollocks!" exclamation as the song heads towards its climax. 

 

Next year will see Fripp and Willcox take their theatrics to the stage as the Sunday Lunch Rock Party 2023 tour threatens to delight audiences up and down the UK. 

Joined by Willcox's Posh Pop Band, the shows promise "the legendary artistic twists that both Robert and Toyah are renowned for." 

The pair will perform songs from their own catalogue, alongside the covers that have made the Sunday Lunch videos such a success, including My Generation, "Heroes", Teenage Kicks, Rebel Yell, Slave To The Rhythm, Smoke On The Water, Are You Gonna Go My Way, Paranoid and more. Full dates below.
