Doll By Doll: How To Change The World In Ten Easy Stages

Nick Kent, New Musical Express, 24 February 1979

"For a long time now I have felt the Void but have refused to hurl myself into the Void.
I have been as cowardly as everything I see.
When I believed I was refusing the world, I now know I was refusing the Void.
For I know this world does not exist and I know how it does not exist.
Until now, my suffering consisted in refusing the Void.

The Void is already within me.
The New Revelations of Being – Antonin Artaud.
