• Short Summary

    Great version of 'Nagasaki' from vocal group The Four Crochets.

  • Description

    Titles read: 'NOW Pathe Pictorial has pleasure in presenting - Another novelty musical Act - "THE FOUR CROCHETS" in "Nagasaki"'.

    Pathe Studio, London.

    Various shots of male singing quartet The Four Crochets performing a fast version of the novelty song 'Nagasaki'. They stand around a microphone to sing and one of the group plays a guitar. All four are dressed in sharp and snappy light-coloured suits.

    In the middle of the song, two of the men make trumpet sounds with their mouths and improvise on the tune.

    This is a good one! Nice example of mid-30s vocal group.
