A Rose In A Garden Of Weeds: A Preamble Through The History Of Pugwash...
Release date: September 23, 2014
If you don’t know Pugwash, we have two words: You should.
Their mix of The Beach Boys meets ELO meets XTC has made them favorites in not only their homeland of Ireland, but across the U.K. Everywhere else, the Pugwash fan base grows as listeners discover the group’s work with contributors like Andy Partridge and Dave Gregory of XTC, Jason Falkner (Jellyfish, TV Eyes), and The Divine Comedy’s Neil Hannon, to name but a few. Pugwash’s albums have thus far only been available outside of North America, and have now slipped out of print! They’ve become sought after—garnering top dollar in collector’s circles.
Omnivore Recordings is proud to remedy that with A Rose In A Garden Of Weeds: A Preamble Through The History Of Pugwash… 17 tracks drawn from 1999’s Almond Tea As Served By… through 2011’s The Olympus Sound (which was nominated for the Choice Music Prize, presented to the best album from Ireland.) Co-Produced by bandleader Thomas Walsh, A Rose In A Garden Of Weeds features tracks that define the Pugwash sound.
Housed in a digipak, with liner notes from Fountains Of Wayne’s Chris Collingwood, rare photos, and remembrances from collaborators.
A Rose In A Garden Of Weeds: A Preamble Through The History Of Pugwash… will finally allow this magical band to bloom around the world!
