#SVNR: Get Acidic (’94 Live Beats)


Among the fans a track called Brown is mentioned every now and then, which was being played during the Jilted Tour at the end of 1994. Now, not every fan can recall why it was called ‘Brown’ neither can they confirm whether it was called so at all. If it wasn’t, what was it called then?

The track is nothing yet a live improvisation by Liam H, which was being played solely at gigs. It’s sure to say that this track had never been intended for an official release. If we dive a bit deeper into it, we’ll notice that the main loop for this track was taken from Get Acidic by M-D-Emm. Therefore, Liam’s improvisation might be considered as live remix of this track, something like M-D-Emm – Get Acidic (LH Live Remix).

But Liam didn’t tend to point out such details in the tracklists, he used to include various abbreviations. Yet in this case…

But still, where did this weird title come from? The thing is, the fans had no access to the backstage info back in the day, so they would make up various titles for ease. In this jam, we can hear a sample from a track with the break from Funky Drummer by James Brown. The fans knew this track and started to call this live jam ‘Live Beats with James Brown’. Over time, ‘Brown’ was all that was left from the title. This title somehow got rooted among the fans, some of whom don’t even understand why this track was called that way, and not otherwise.

— Why is Brown called Brown? I mean, was it on the listing at the gig, or did somebody make it up?
— The reason I was given by someone I traded with was because people called it «Live Beats with James Brown» (???), and this got spread by word of mouth as «Brown».

Anyway, it’s not so brown as many of you may think! The real title for this track is ‘Get Acidic’, as in his original form.
