Metal Hammer

When the teenage James Hetfield and Lars Ulrich got together in Los Angeles-area garages in 1981 and began to channel their shared love of Motorhead, Diamond Head and a host of long-forgotten New Wave of British Heavy Metal bands into original compositions, did they ever wonder what their nascent thrash metal tunes might sound like when performed by King Crimson legend Robert Fripp and New Wave firebrand Toyah? It’s a mystery, as Toyah sang in 1981.

Some 41 years on, however, thanks to the magical institution that is Toyah and Robert’s Sunday Lunch, we now know how Seek and Destroy sounds in the hands of Britain’s most loved-up musical couple.

If you’re familiar with the life-affirming joys that the duo have been cooking up in their kitchen in Worcestershire over the past two years you’ll know exactly what to expect here: although, to be fair, Toyah’s addition of two squeaky toys on the chorus is inspired. And for those who’re new to TARSL… oh boy, your life will never be the same again.
