Linus consist of two American sisters, Jennifer (bass, guitar, vocals) and Tammy Denitto (vocals), now based in the UK, who formed the band in 1989 in London along with Peter (drums) and Andy Roberts (guitar). In 1992, their performances began to attract attention and their debut EP, issued on Bone Records, aroused further interest. Their music, ranging from wiry, cutting pop to restrained, reflective laments, was more forcefully promoted the following year. The single, ‘Super Golgotha Crucifixion Scene’, and album, Yougli, won them new fans. The single was BBC Radio One’s Evening Session’s Single Of The Week. Its title was typical of their intriguing but often obscure lyrics. Steve Hughes was brought in on drums before a UK tour to promote the album. In 1995 two EPs were released by Elemental Records, Supercool and Better Genes.
