The former Maccabees guitarist offered a helping hand to Foals frontman Yannis Philippakis who had a “run in with a knife” earlier this week.
The former Maccabees guitarist gave a last minute hand to the band, after frontman Yannis Philippakis suffered a nasty knife-inflicted hand injury.
Watch our footage of the moment above.
The Oxford outfit played a rendition of their On The Luna track at the star-studded ceremony, at London's Eventim Apollo Hammersmith, which also featured performances from Anna Calvi, slowthai and IDLES.
The First Love rocker first broke the news that he'd be giving Yannis a helping hand on Twitter, writing: "I’m jumping in on guitar for @foals tomorrow at the @MercuryPrize whilst @YnnsPhilippakis hand is on the mend".
Taking to his personal Twitter account earlier this week, Yannis shared photos of his stitched-up hand alongside the caption: "Really sorry not gonna be at Reeperbahn festival on Friday. Had a run in with a knife in Greece".

It's not clear exactly how The Runner singer sustained the injury, but the frontman has made it clear it wasn't self-inflicted, writing on Twitter: "Somebody else was holding the knife just to be clear...anyway am on the mend ".
