Eels' Mark 'E' Everett became an ice cream man of sorts today (August 22) at V Festival in Chelmsford, dishing out free cold treats to fans.

The heavily bearded musician, leading his band on the V Stage, hurled out scores of the dairy snacks to delighted audience members during a set that included a cover of The Lovin' Spoonful's 1966 hit 'Summer In The City'.

Playing with two further guitarists in his set-up, Everett also treated the Hylands Park crowd to sped-up, rocky versions of 'Mr E's Beautiful Blues', 'My Beloved Monster' and 'I Like Birds'.

Eels' new album 'Tomorrow Morning' is, fittingly, out tomorrow. The band previewed two songs from the record – 'Spectacular Girl' (listen by clicking on the video on the top right) and 'Looking Up', which closed the set after 'Summertime' – during which Everett threw his ice creams to the crowd.

Eels played:

'Prizefighter'
'Summer In The City'
'Tremendous Dynamite'
'My Beloved monster'
'Spectacular Girl'
'Souljacker Pt 1'
'That Look You Give That Guy'
'Talkin 'Bout Knuckles'
'Mr E's Beautiful Blues'
'I Like Birds'
'Summertime'
'Looking Up'
