Robert Fripp and Toyah Wilcox have continued their Sunday Lunch series with a cover of one of The Rolling Stones’ signature hits. 

Yep, the duo finally tackled one of the world’s biggest bands by performing their own rendition of ‘(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction’.

True to form, their performance was just as theatrical as we’ve come to expect, with Wilcox covered in colourful body paint as Fripp accompanied her on guitar.

As per the tradition of the last few weeks, the pair were also joined by mysterious guitar player Sidney Jakes, who has worn a mask for each of their videos.

Last week, their cover of Judas Priest’s ‘Breaking the Law’ saw Wilcox don a police officer’s uniform complete with badge and cuffs.

Throughout the last year, Fripp and Wilcox have shared covers of rock classics from the likes of Nirvana, Metallica, Jimi Hendrix, Guns N’ Roses, Foo Fighters and more.

In an interview with The Guardian, Willcox revealed why they began the Sunday Lunch series.

“Here I am in this house with this 74-year-old husband who I really don’t want to live without,” she said.

She continued: “He was withdrawing, so I thought: ‘I’m going to teach him to dance.’ And it became a challenge.”

“The response was so overwhelmingly positive, and now, six months down the line, he can see that it was quite an important thing to do, in that it became a shared experience with an audience that needed to be reminded of the beauty of human laughter.”
