Ouch. In an unusual incident, Maximo Park's guitarist Duncan has snapped his arm.

Duncan was apparently arm wrestling with the band's lawyer - which would mean not only did he get his arm broken, but the ten minutes he was writhing round in pain will be billed at £300 an hour.

Paul Smith is not happy:

"It's really annoying , we were going to spend the next month in our house in Newcastle where we practice just bashing tunes out and playing each other new songs and coming up with new bits , you never get to know a song 'till you play it, so it's completely ruined that time now."

Well, you could make all the new records sound like the last ones. Stood you in good stead so far.
