Arabicus or Arabacus Pulp?[edit]

For years, this article said that the band's first name was "Arabacus Pulp", referencing the biography by Mark Sturdy (2003). Now it says "Arabicus Pulp", still referencing the same work. Is this change based on consulting the actual book? At Google Books, I find both spellings, also in earlier works - e.g. this article from 1996 says indeed "Arabacus", not Arabicus, also "The Rough Guide to Rock", 2003. Access to the book by Sturdy seems to be restricted at Google Books, not even allowing searching the book / snippet preview, so I can't say whether Sturdy has actually "Arabicus" or "Arabacus".

I changed it, the book is in front of me here, it says "Arabicus" throughout. Further evidence here - http://i138.photobucket.com/albums/q276/james-errington/Sticker.jpg 阝工巳几千凹父工氐 (talk) 05:34, 20 May 2012 (UTC)
Thanks! Then I'm going to change this over at the German Wikipedia, too. The misspelling "Arabacus" seems to be widespread... Gestumblindi (talk) 02:00, 22 May 2012 (UTC)
