ANDY PARTRIDGE (XTC) - "Pugwash, at their best, are almost Beatle-like in their greatness. They are THAT good."
After flooring audiences a year ago at Toad - Pugwash returns to the U.S. and to The Lizard bringing their power pop brilliance to a larger audience.
Thomas Walsh is a Choice Music Prize, Meteor and Ivor Novello
nominated songwriter having been the driving force behind his
cult powerpop outfit PUGWASH for ten years and recently being
one half of the cricket loving pop duo 'THE DUCKWORTH LEWIS
METHOD' with musical partner Neil Hannon.
Thomas, in his guise as PUGWASH has released 7 albums in ten years
and been given numerous accolades..one of which is still a 'goosepimple'
moment for him. "Back in 2006 Brian Wilson's manager David Leaf obtained
my e-mail through an acquaintance and sent me a mail saying that Brian
loved my track 'It's nice to be nice' and as he was coming to Dublin to
play in Vicar Street he'd love to meet me. MEET ME!!?? He came, I met
Brian, he said 'Hey! You're the nice to be nice guy', I said 'Yes' and he
said 'Great song'.....I still think it was all a fantastic dream to be honest".
In 2010 Thomas & Pugwash were snapped up by the renowned AMA -
Music Agency and Thomas has just secured a worldwide publishing
deal with SONY/ATV. August 2011 will see Pugwash release their 5th
album "THE OLYMPUS SOUND" on none other than the venerable E.M.I.,
the bands new home.
