Linx Biography (Wikipedia)

Linx was a British soul/funk band consisting of David Grant (lead vocals), Bob Carter (keyboards), Andy Duncan (drums), Canute Edwards (guitar), Peter Martin (bass) (aka Sketch) and Junior Giscombe (backing vocals). After its first hit in 1980, the band slimmed down to a duo of Grant and Martin. They had six entries on the UK Singles Chart from mid 1980 until mid 1982. The band's biggest success was "Intuition," which reached number 7 in early 1981. Other hits included "You're Lying" and "So This is Romance." Linx also contributed to the influential C81 compilation cassette released by New Musical Express magazine in 1981.

Linx had success with 'Intuition' due to a BBC technician's strike, which resulted in only music videos and photographic stills being allowed to be used on 'Top Of The Pops' for a period. This resulted in the video for 'Intuition', which at the time was in the 60's in the music charts, being shown several times. This resulted in it rising to the Top Ten.

Bass player Sketch played a variety of bright funk styles that typified the band's sound. Junior Giscombe is the uncle of British comedian and TV personality Richard Blackwood. Bob Carter and Andy Duncan were session musicians who were known for their contribution to Hazel O'Connor's Breaking Glass album and movie.
