Famous German author Benjamin von Stuckrad-Barre is a PSB-fan and mentions the boys in a few of his books.

I saw Patsy Kensit's autobiography, think it was called Absolute Beginner, in a discount shop recently. Couldn't resist having a nose to see what she says about them, and she said they're nice but it's a short mention. She says how she fought them to have I'm Not Scared released under the name Eighth Wonder, as they wanted it as Patsy Kensit. Anyway, after reading a few lines I decided that it was badly written and she was utterly conceited and I wasn't going to spend even 2 euro on something that would do my head in :wall:

Have that old Michael Cowton (I think) book too, the unofficial biography, which isn't a bad read.


Found two mentions in Patsy Kensit's autobiography.

They're mentioned a few times in "I, c***" but I couldn't be bothered hunting around for the reference, so you'll just have to take my word for it. (Also, Carter USM get a mention too, so the two best bands of all time both get a mention)

This is what I remember book wise. *The cogs are turning now*! They are in a few Guinness book of records. (I don't think they even do these now-a-days). Neil's Dairy book of Home Management. (I found one of these second hand and it sadly fell to bits). They are mentioned in Tom Watkins book - Let's make lots of money. (For some reason I am still shocked that Tom had written most of Bross' songs). We have got Ramzy's book too (sorry, if I spelt your user name wrong - my memory is bad).
