Toyah and Robert Fripp tossed two years of custom out of the kitchen window on this week’s Sunday Lunch broadcast to the country. After construction a name for enthusiastically ragged however in the long run joyous are living covers of well known songs, the dynamic duo tweaked their successful system and mimed to a real studio recording of Toyah’s upcoming unmarried, a canopy of Grace Jones’ 1985 damage Slave To The Rhythm.

It was once co-written by way of Trevor Horn, Bruce Woolley and Stephen Lipson – along Toyah’s long-standing songwriting spouse Simon Darlow – and Toyah sang at the authentic demo model of the music, which was once rejected by way of Frankie Goes To Hollywood earlier than being picked up by way of Jones.
In April, Toyah published on her weblog (opens in new tab) that she’d recorded a brand new model of the vintage with Darlow, roping in King Crimson guy Fripp so as to add some delightfully Fripp-esque guitar to the recording.
“It sounds wonderful, utterly other to Grace Jones’ iconic and very best authentic,” she wrote. “My model will wonder all, it has a connection to the phrases that all at once published itself once I put the principle vocal down and Fripp performed. The 3 folks in point of fact are an ideal musical group, we’re very excited.”
In the video, Fripp mimes his guitar traces from a status place – itself a rarity – and in truth strikes all over the efficiency, shuffling thankfully from foot to foot with all of the giddy insouciance of a Studio 54 common. Meanwhile, Darlow joins in remotely. It’s all extraordinarily invigorating.
