Gadzooks, look at those fat dewds swing. Mills Brothers, baby! Paper Doll, pallie!

Ah, the genetically-enhanced tightness of sibling harmonies.

Too cool, saw them in a film just last night. The director lingered on their numbers a long time, too, as if he enjoyed their harmonizing as much as I did.

Ah yes! Dino's inspiration, his idol: Harry Mills.

In their early work they were billed as "four boys and a guitar" and it was constantly stated that the guitar was the only musical instrument used on their recordings. Amazing talents.
