PARIS – The last Acid jazz fan has died at the age of 68.

Acid Jazz was a weird thing. In the 80s and 90s you couldn’t seem to get past a bar without getting some on your clothes. Now it’s gone though. And with the passing of the last Acid Jazz fan, you can rest assured it will never come back.

Music critic Alf Parnard talked to the Studio Exec:

Acid Jazz was basically jazz played by white guys in straw hats. It was pretty awful but for some reason Steven Soderbergh kept using it in his soundtracks. I’d usually start naming famous musicians in this genre but either accidentally or on purpose, I seem to have forgotten them all.

Maurice Claverum was the last Acid Jazz fan and he died in his apartment last night after a dinner of poached eggs.

RIP Acid Jazz 1989-2018.
