• Short Summary

    The Moderniques sing the fast jazz tune 'Tiger Rag'.

  • Description

    Titles read: "Now Pathetone presents - The Moderniques - Stars of Radio and Variety, in "Tiger Rag!" - Four voices and a guitar."

    Location of events unknown (could be London Pathe studio).

    Various shots of the four male singers of The Moderniques performing 'Tiger Rag' before an old-fashioned microphone. One of the men plays a guitar. The song is a fast jazz number; two of the men take turns to scat on the tune, and impersonate a trumpet solo.

    Nice example of early 30s jazz vocal group.
