Bentley's Blog Baddist ACID Trips ... (don't try this at home!)
Bentleys Blog does not condone the use of LSD. Do not under any circumstances
attempt to copy any of the stunts described in this Blog. I was very lucky to have
survived the Psychedelic experience. Some people that I knew took a Trip and never

... late one night in 1969 - or was it 68? (I can't remember the sixties - so I must've
been there!) - Teenage Rick - Little Ian - and myself drank some Electric Cool Aid
(pure LSD mixed with Orange Juice) and then set off from Hull in my Dads white
Zepher 4 on a 'trip' to London to visit Honk + - I know I know I know that driving a car
whilst tripping is totally irresponsible - and is like a really stupid and very dangerous
thing to do - but I had the ridiculous notion from previous experience that the effect
of perpetual motion would prevent the hallucinations from taking a firm grip on my
reality ... what am I talking about?
the headlights don't work when you're travelling faster than the speed of light ...
... it was a beautifully clear night - and I was behind the wheel - staring out through
dilated pupils at the road - which was illuminated by the cars headlights or (in my
mind) tractor beams - as we sped along - the road ahead looked more like a
wormhole than the A1 - my dads Zepher had transmogrified into some kind of
Interstella Spacecraft and was transporting us to another dimension ... for your
information: there is no way of telling which way is up or which way is down when
you are travelling at warp speed through a wormhole - but it is the best fun I've ever
had with my clothes on!
... our psychedelic journey was abruptly interrupted when a police car pulled up
alongside us in the time tunnel and signalled us to pull over - I managed to stop
fairly convincingly - and we all stumbled out of the car - stationary now the
hallucinations seriously took over my perception of reality - but we were totally
cool with the whole policeman thing as we weren't 'carrying' anything - and we all
stood passively at the side of the road starring into outer-space while the police
officer inspected the vehicle - he pointed out that one of our tyres needed
replacing - we must have have been putting out some weird vibes - and it is my
guess that the officer of the law was psyched out - or maybe he just thought we
were all from Yugoslavia? - who knows? - who cares? ... anyway this kind &
considerate officer of the law proceeded to change the wheel for us - as it must
have been obvious to him than none of us were going to do it - satisfied that we
were now roadworthy - he signalled for us carry on our journey - so we all piled
back into the car - Little Ian took over the wheel - and we drove off into the night
minus a few more million brain cells ...
to be discontinued ...

U.S.A. Tour July 2012 - where temperatures are the highest ever on record!
Squeeze play the Charter One Pavillion in Chicago
the temperature here is 108 degrees. I have been sat on the bus outside the venue

engage with the outside world just yet. The outside world being the 30 seconds it

Neo Nazis in Nebraska
Yesterday we were in Lincoln Nebraska. I went to look at a Vintage Shop with the very
Entertaining Mr. Large (who's birthday it was) Happy Birthday old boy! Anyway we were
astonished to find among the many interesting items - an action figure of Heinrich Himmler!
- complete with the original box.
The shop owners had wisely taken care to keep Heinrich confined to his box -
which had an attached note:
"for historic educational purposes only
and not intended to glorify or exploit
the horrors and atrocities of war"
There was a fair amount of Nazi memorabilla in the store - and after some
investigation we discovered that there had been a group of Neo Nazis based in the
town. Now apparently the fanatical leader of the group contracted AIDS - and as he
approached the end of his life his family refused to look after him. A local Rabbi was
the only person who agreed to take him in - the Nazi was so touched by his
altruism (whatever that means?) that he renounced his previously wicked life with a
complete turn around on his death bed!
there's nothing like a blog with a happy ending - and this is nothing like one ...
