"They have to be the biggest flop in the music industry I have ever seen."
Not true I'm afraid. I don't know about the rest of the world, but they had lots of #1s here in the UK and, for some strange reason, they were very popular. I personally couldn't stand them.
Something that gave me great pleasure was hearing about Victoria Beckham promoting her debut record with Tru-steppers and Dane Bowers outside a shop in London (I quote "...buy the record and make me the happiest girl in the world!") and then seeing Sophie Ellis-Bextor beat her to #1 by a country mile.
Come fly with me, let's fly, let's fly away...
