Only another 402 to go. A quick snap taken at the Vexations performance staged at the National Museum of Wales on Saturday. I sat through about about two hours worth and found it rather soothing. With the aid of a cushion and some nibbles I reckon I could have done the whole 18 hours, no problem. That, though, would have meant risking temporary insanity. When Peter Evans attempted to play all 840 repetitions solo, in Sydney in 1970, he had to be removed from the stage on repetition 575. He'd started seeing monsters coming out of the walls. All I saw were a few water lillies.
