Maximo Park guitarist breaks arm

Duncan Lloyd is injured following the ShockWaves NME Awards 2006

Maximo Park’s Duncan Lloyd broke his arm last night (February 23) following the ShockWaves NME Awards 2006.

The guitarist was injured at a party held at a hotel close to the Hammersmith Palais following the awards ceremony.

Lloyd has learnt that he will be out of action for “six to eight weeks”, and it appears the band will have to miss supporting Razorlight on March 30.

Writing on the band’s website, singer Paul Smith confirmed the injury saying: “After the NME Awards show, Dunc broke his right arm. We hope he gets better soon, obviously, but it looks like we won’t be playing the Albert Hall, since he is the guitar player… at least we don’t have to cancel an entire tour. Small mercies.”

The Maximo Park man’s injury is the second connected to this year’s awards.

As previously reported The CribsRyan Jarman was injured during the ceremony after jumping on to a table.

However both men did not have to suffer alone as reportedly they met up in Charing Cross Hospital’s A&E Department while having their injuries tended to.
