Also a factor seems to be UK was a singles driven market, the major labels of the day were very willing to take chance on a band for a few singles and go for a national hit.

Whereas in the US at the time regional labels were still viable, and a garage band could go regional but rarely national. The majors were not as atuned to the local scenes as the UK being more compact a major was much more in touch, plus the power of MM, NME, Record Mirror, Sounds(?)
