Why do you not have reviews of Pugwash's LPs? This is one of the best bands to come out in the past 15 years. A brilliant Irish pop band, critically acclaimed in the UK, and highly touted by Andy Partridge, arguably the best pop songwriter in the past 30 years. So, how did you miss them?

Like most reviewers, they write almost exclusively about albums that the promoter or record company sends them.  It's possible that they never received any copies.  Since AMG is based in America, it's helpful if a single or album has charted in the USA, and those groups that have will receive precedence in the big pile of things to be reviewed.

Pugwash's Wikipedia article shows no chart results in any country, and a nomination but not a win for one of the Choice Music Prizes.  Their website is dead.  There are a lot of outstanding UK acts that barely register over here and without a hit they'll probably need a radio jock to take up their cause.  The web is too big and disorganized to do the job just now.
