#MusicMonday on a Friday

I put this up because some schmuck decided to block my original post from view in "your country." Well! Take that, because I found a BETTER version in STEREO!

The Mascots were a Swedish pop group formed in Stockholm in 1963, heavily inspired by British pop and Merseybeat . The group broke through the fall of 1964 with the song Baby, Baby. Other hits were among the other A Sad Boy, Stones Fell, Call Me Your Love and Words Enough to Tell You, which I heard for the first time in 1967 on a flexidisc the girl down the street received in the mail from her pen-pal in Denmark.

The Mascots were offered a recording contract in England, on one condition: that they should change the band's name to The Swedish Design, which they refused. The Mascots final attempt to break through internationally was with the single Moreen / Baby You're So Wrong, released in 1968 on ABC Records in New York. The group made ​​their last gig in August 1969.

Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
