  Paul's band could face fight over name
Updated 29 March 2002, 11.43
S Club 7
Paul Cattermole's new band Skua could face a rocky start - as a band with the same name already exists!

They are a Swedish "heavy grooverock" outfit that specialise in psychedelic, progressive jazzrock.

Paul Cattermole
It's believed that S Club star Paul's band is a nu metal outfit.

He told Newsround about his school band Skua in an interview in January:

"I used to be in a rock band. We had a Limp Bizkit vibe."

Wrote own music

"It was kind of like Rage Against the Machine, but six or seven years ago. We used to write our own tunes so the vibe was much more creative and organic."

Rocking since 1998
Music inspired by Kyuss (whoever they are!)
The three members call themselves Skuas
They call their music "pyschedelic, progressive, jazzrock"
Skua is also a type of bird that lives near the Falklands!
In the past other bands have been forced to change their name if another band with the same name already exists.

Earlier this year Liberty were forced to rename themselves Liberty X because a band with the name Liberty had had a few hits in the early 1990s.
