Linus was an indie band from London, England, formed in 1992. They were integral to the early UK riot grrrl scene. Linus was formed by s Jen Denitto and Andy Roberts, with vocalist Tammy Denitto and drummer Peter Frost, and played their first gigs in late 1992 after several years of rehearsals.
Linus, ‘Super Golgotha Crucifixion Scene’ (1994). Born in 1992, this coed London quartet was closely associated with riot grrrl, sharing stages with Bikini Kill, Huggy Bear and Pussycat Trash. But the band’s protean, relatively sophisticated songwriting and production never fit the rough-and-ready template embraced by most of its peers - Linus leaned more toward musically ecumenical indie rock, albeit with unabashed feminist politics. The instruments in Supreme Nothing tumble and trip as if they are going to fall apart at any minute, but instead they climb higher. Rose Melberg and Angela Loy sing steadfastly on top of the anarchy in girlie voices, not letting the nihilism of the music and the lyrics sour their day.
