51zD6khkMYL. SL500  Sugagbabes   New Controversy From The Original LineupThe current lineup of the Sugababes, which features none of the girls that originally brought the band into the public eye, is facing fresh controversy following legal action being launched from founding member Mutya Buena.

Buena, now backed up by the other two original members, Keisha Buchanan and Siobahn Donaghy, has launched legal action over the rights to the Sugababes name, further fuelling rumours that the original lineup is to reform. Current member Heidi Range (part of the group since their second album and currently back in the charts with the Sugababes and the song ‘Wear My Kiss) has stated that the name is owned by Universal Records, but still there is movement from the original trio to get the name back.

The Sugababes are a very different act these days to their original incarnation. Where their early music from the original thre414AFv6y%2B5L.

That’s not how the act started out, and it would be great to see the name shift back to the people that, in many fans’ opinions, are the rightful owners. After all, at what point does a band with none of the original members stop being the band and turn into a covers band?

In the case of the Sugababes, with none of the original members and none of the original spark to their music, that point seems to have passed a while ago. We personally would love to hear something soulful and gritty from the original Sugababes (who were responsible for the superb Sugababes One Touch album), as the band currently boasting that name aren’t very sweet.
