I wish I could say that this year I’d manned up and joined Gimpo as he patrolled the borders of London. Sadly, I wussed out, and the Spin remained yet again a Rob-free zone. I console myself with the fact that there’s still a chunk of time to go. There are seven Spins left for me to make my mark. This year, Gimpo was largely on his own. It is, I guess, inevitable that at some point the mission will boil down to its essential elements: a man, a sacrifice, a journey mapped as much in time as in distance. Gimpo was, however, joined for one lap of the Spin by Mark – Iron Man Records, who has been a regular and enthusiastic chronicler of the way of the Spin. With his permission, Excuses And Half Truths is proud to present his illustrated witness statement of his time on the road with Gimpo. Strap in, get comfortable. This one could take a while.

A journey without a destination, on a road without end. Documentary film-makers Dominic Wade and Rob Wickings explore the reasons why a man would want to drive around the M25 for 25 hours, once a year for 25 years.

Gimpo is an unusual and endearing character, and he’s seen a lot in his many years on the road. He was one of the few witnesses to the K Foundation’s anti-art establishment actions, which led to the burning of a million pounds on the Isle of Jura in 1994. Bill Drummond accompanied Gimpo on the first Spin. Footage of that day was captured on VHS and will be included in the film. The M25 Spin is part performance artwork, part club venue (the references to rave culture and its restless, mobile nature are clear) and part motoring oddity (it’s still possible to buy DVDs that are exclusively footage of a circuit of the M25. It’s entirely likely that Gimpo owns one of these tapes). Featuring interviews with Bill Drummond and Iain Sinclair, The End Point Of A Circle will document, embrace and eventually become part of the whole process. “You wanna know why the M25 Spin is 25hrs and not 24? Le Mans is 24hrs. I just want to be one louder. …..I’m the artist here.” – Gimpo

Once a year, at the weekend closest to the Spring Equinox, Gimpo - best known to KLF watchers as the man who filmed the money burning - drives around the M25 for 25 hours. His aim is to do this for 25 years. He's done 17 years so far. This week I was interviewed by Bristol filmmakers Dominic Wade and Rob Wickings, who are making a documentary called End Point of a Circle about this mighty endeavour. There's an early taste of it here, but it won't be finished for another eight years, after the 25th M25 Spin. (A 25-minute version should appear at the Portobello Film Festival at the end of August, and include interviews with Iain Sinclair and Bill Drummond.) Dennis the Cat not happy that Rob and Dom filmed the interview in his garden. Gimpo's M25 spin and Iain Sinclair's later book London Orbital were influences which fed into my book The Brandy of the Damned, in a which three people drive around the coast of Britain in a van....
