This week’s kitchen cover sees the couple take on The Prodigy’s ‘Firestarter’, with Wilcox dressed in a flaming red outfit and spiky hair in homage to late Prodigy frontman Keith Flint. They’re joined again by Sidney Jake, who is seen wearing a white shirt, grey waistcoat and his usual gold mask.

“The kitchen trio take it to the extreme this weekend – BE WARNED! Joined by the mysterious stranger Sidney Jake,” Willcox captioned the new video.

Earlier this year, Fripp and Willcox covered Led Zeppelin’s 1971 classic ‘Black Dog’. They also shared a New Year’s message with their viewers in a separate video.

“For my 2021, I wish for an inclusive, equitable and compassionate society,” Fripp said in that clip. “And how I’m gonna get my wishes [is] by strapping on my guitar and rocking out like an uncontrollable fireball of rock fury.”

Willcox revealed in February that her Sunday Lockdown Lunch video series started because her husband, King Crimson‘s Robert Fripp, was having withdrawals from performing.

Last October, former King Crimson singer and bassist Gordon Haskell died aged 74. The late musician was asked by Fripp to join the band in 1970 following the departure of Greg Lake, their original vocalist.

Bill Rieflin, the former drummer of King Crimson, also passed away last year. He was 59 years old.
