    Pinewood Stock Can material.

    VS of two young men singing and playing guitars (a skiffle group ?) in a coffee bar. Pan along and we see another guitarist a drummer and a man playing the double bass. Young men and women are listening and singing along. (What a shame this is mute - MD)

    MS a man (possibly an interviewer) asks a girl in the audience about the band. More shots of the band playing and groovy young things on the audience watching and listening to the music. People mainly appear to be drinking Coca-Cola. One member of the band plays the Kazoo. CU Thimble protected fingers playing the washboard. CU fingers playing guitar. VS CUs of members of the band playing. Good shots. An exotic mural is painted on the wall behind the band.
