Clinic was formed in 1997 by Ade Blackburn and Jonathan Hartley following the split of their previous band, Pure Morning. They developed early notoriety for featuring instruments (primarily keyboards/organs) that were acquired at various rummage sales and flea markets. Brian Campbell and Carl Turney joined the band and soon their first EP I.P.C. Subeditors Dictate Our Youth was released on their own Aladdin’s Cave of Golf record label. The EP made John Peel’s Festive 50 at the end of the year and two other self-financed singles followed in 1998.
