A legal showdown is looming over the use of the name UB40 after former members of the band announced they were adopting it.
A rival camp is already touring and recording under the title.
Ex-singer Ali Campbell has now teamed up with two fellow founding members of the group, Astro and Mickey Virtue.
They plan to form a band using the name UB40. The opposition band is led by Ali's brother Robin Campbell.
UB40 topped the charts with Red Red Wine and I Got You Babe.
