Founding King Crimson guitarist Robert Fripp and his wife, singer Toyah Willcox, have shared a cover of Alice Cooper‘s Poison.

The pair launched their Sunday Lunch video series last year with covers of songs by Nirvana, Metallica, Guns N’ Roses, Led Zeppelin and more through Willcox’s YouTube channel .This week’s kitchen cover sees the couple take on Alice Cooper’s Poison.

Willcox captioned the new video with: “It’s Poison running through your veins….. Nothing more to say!” You can watch the cover below.

Willcox revealed earlier this month that her Sunday Lockdown Lunch video series started because her husband, King Crimson‘s Robert Fripp, was having withdrawals from performing. Despite this, Fripp was reportedly “fucking furious” when his first viral video went online, according to Wilcox.

Alice Cooper released Poison in 1989, as part of his 11th studio record Trash. Cooper recently spoke up about the ‘shock rock’ approach that earned him fame initially, saying that audiences are now numb to pretty much all ‘shocking’ stage antics, saying “You could cut off your arm and eat it on stage. it wouldn’t matter”
