Damon Albarn was also a special guest of Latitude Festival last month.

Damon Albarn is leading the late additions to End Of The Road festival, cushioning the blow of losing artists such as Tune-Yards, Songhoy Blues, Blanck Mass and Margaret Glaspy.

Others making last minute plans to be at Larmer Tree Gardens between September 2nd-5th include Anna B Savage, Kiran Leonard and Joe Goddard (DJ), adding to the previously confirmed headliners King Krule, Hot Chip and Stereolab, as well as Sleaford Mods hot off the release of their Spare Ribs album.

“Spare Ribs is Jason Williamson and Andrew Fearn’s sixth album working together, but as well as holding a torch for the disaffected as before, it’s the first outing on which they’ve come to the realisation that they’re also capable of being pop stars, if only by their own definition,” Live4ever’s review reads.

Most of it was recorded in a frenetic three-week period in the early summer of 2020, but the blank mental canvas created by Staying Home before that are Williamson’s chief muse. In his cross hairs is the ghoulish Dominic Cummings, served a verbal kicking allegorically (Shortcummings) and directly (Out There, lyrics: ‘Why’s this c*** got police protection, he didn’t even stand in the last election’).
