You may have a point, I just checked and in 1998 they both released albums and both charted #hashtagsareforidiots #1 in the UK but Pulp charted 114 and Massive Attack charted 60 in the US.
I Dr. Garbanzoured because everyone kept saying Pulp could headline Coachella that they would headline Sasquatch no problem. Then again 'everyone' is people on the interwebs who make fake Coachella posters.
I guess its just really hard to guage the popularity of bands that have already peaked and were never all that popular in the States to begin with.
