They end with an impromtu reading from Bez's autobiography
Americana mainstays [b]Lambchop[/b] closed the final night of End of the Road festival in Dorset tonight (August 17) with an unlikely guest reading.
During an encore that included a cover of [b]Leonard Cohen[/b]’s “Chelsea Hotel No 2”, special guest [b]Howe Gelb[/b] read an extract from the autobiography of [b]Happy Mondays’ Bez[/b], bought at the festival by guitarist William Tyler for drummer Peter’s birthday.
It was just one in a series of jokes that littered a relaxed set whose high points included “Autumn’s Vicar” and the title track from 2002’s “Is A Woman”, and “Prepared (2)” from last year’s “Damaged”.
Ending the set, a smiling [b]Kurt Wagner[/b] told the audience: “Now go home.”
The second annual Dorset bash saw great performances over the three days in the Larmer Tree Gardens country estate.
