Is this Black Sabbath cover by King Crimson guitarist Robert Fripp and his wife Toyah the oddest tribute of 2020?

Robert Fripp (opens in new tab)… visionary, eccentric, King Crimson (opens in new tab) mastermind and now performer of Black Sabbath's Paranoid (opens in new tab) on his Fernandes Custom Gold (opens in new tab) guitar in a prison while wearing fake tattoos. 

And his wife of 34 years, musician / actress / author Toyah Wilcox, is singing it while behind bars. It's the latest instalment if the couple's wonderfully imaginative lockdown videos that have also included Fripp playing Deep Purple (opens in new tab)'s ubiquitous Smoke On The Water (opens in new tab) next to a lake while Wilcox dances dressed as a cheerleader (see below). 

We say bring it on, it's not like 2020 isn't bizarre enough already.
