The Acid Diaries
by Christopher Gray

CHRISTOPHER GRAY (1942-2009) was well known for his involvement in the 1960s with Situationist International, for his various radical writings, and as Swami Prem Paritosh, disciple of the guru Osho.

Toward the end of his fifties, Gray took, for the first time in years, a 100-microgram acid trip. So extraordinary, and to his surprise so enjoyable, were the effects that he began to take the same dose in the same way–quietly and on his own–once every two to three weeks.

The single “The Naz” features Sly Stone on vocals telling the story of Jesus Christ of Nazareth as told by beat poet Lord Buckley in his famous poem “The Nazz”. Sly uses his trademark radio rap that he used to kick as a DJ on San Francisco’s radio station KSOL-AM. “He just laid it down and we built the entire song around it,” says Clinton.

The second song on this single is “Nuclear Dog”, an instrumental rock reworking of Clinton’s 1983 chart topping hit “Atomic Dog.” In classic Funkadelic tradition, “Nuclear Dog” features blazing solo after solo from long time P-Funk guitarist DeWayne “Blackbyrd” McKnight. Jazz fans should know Blackbyrd from his start with the great Sonny Rollins and subsequent legendary work as a member of Herbie Hancock & The Headhunters before he joined P-Funk.
