It happened while the trio were performing at a show in Lagos in Nigeria last week with King Sunny Adé. They were about to begin the 3rd song when David took hold of a second guitar and was instantly struck by over 240 volts. An investigation into exactly what happened is continuing but David is back in the UK still recovering with a broken leg. The band, nominated for the Mercury Prize in 2009, cancelled all their gigs, but will still release their second album Rispah on 11 June.http://www.bbc.co.uk/music/artists/08d43582-cee9-42a0-8ec7-bbf8389f62c2?clipfocus=p00tbhgzSelected ClipSelected ClipAudio 3 mins
