Mongrel to headline No Passport Necessary festival

The multi-cultural festival takes place in London this May

Mongrel's band arrangement has certainly got us all talking, with a line-up comprising of ex-Monkey Andy Nicholson, Babyshambles' Drew McConnell and The Reverend. But are they actually any good? We watch from afar as they take to an old pub stage in London this week for a public no-frills jamming session to find out. Get the verdict in this week's NME. Pic: James Quinton
