Now 30+ years into their illustrious mask-adorned career, British band Clinic continue to unleash unpredictably thrilling music through a commitment to experimentation, a dedication to the craft of the song, and embracing the rackety joy of melodic noise. Currently pared down to founding members Ade Blackburn and Jonathan Hartley, Clinic released their 9th studio album Fantasy Island — a record inspired by disparate influences including The Human League, Fun Boy Three, Kid Creole and The Coconuts, Italian cosmic disco, the Memphis Jug Band, and old blues music — this past October on their longtime label Domino Records.
Clinic's exclusive guest DJ mix for Midnight In A Perfect World wrapped up our 2021 series during the Christmas holiday weekend, and the duo fittingly describe their mix as "subversive yuletide fun" as they share groovy, bizarre, and eclectic favorites from their deep record collection.
