UB40's Ali Campbell doesn't want to reconcile with his brothers 'A Real Labour of Love'

UB40's Ali Campbell has no interest in reconciling with his brothers after he was forced the leave the original line-up of the band.

In 2008, the 59-year-old singer was left with no choice but to quit the reggae group he founded back in 1979 after a disagreement with his sibling Robin Campbell and his other bandmates over the practices of their management which he considered to be against their socialist ideals.

The band went on to split into two factions with the third Campbell brother Duncan replacing Ali on vocals in one line-up and expensive legal battles followed over who could use the iconic name.

Ali is now reclaiming the legacy of his group, and his version, titled UB40 featuring Ali Campbell, Astro and Mickey, is set to land the highest entry in the UK album chart this week with their new LP 'A Real Labour of Love'.
