Quickly, before we go, there’s news of the first raft of confirmations for this year’s End of the Road festival.
Top of the pile are beleaguered wailers Mercury Rev, who play Larmer Tree Gardens in Dorset as their only UK festival date of the summer.
They’ll be joined by these others:
Micah P Hinson,
Sun Kil Moon / Mark Kozelek
Jason Molina (Songs: Ohia/Magnolia Electric Co.)
A Hawk and a Hacksaw
Bob Log III
The Wave Pictures
Tickets are available from here, costing £105 including camping if you’re an adult – if you’re not, get off this site, shrimp. The festival runs from the 12th 'til the 14th of September.
