Two clips with Macots. One bizarre with the group fooling around as cavemen with the actor Brasse Brännström. The other one, a beautiful expose of mods hanging around in Stockholm 1966. Both vlips are parts from Lasse Hallström’s film “Tryck opp i topp! : hur man lyckas i pop, om man riktigt anstränger sig” (Push it to the top! : How to make it in pop, if you really try). A humorous depiction of how Mascots tries to make it to the Swedish chart “Tio i topp”. Broadcasted in Popside,Swedish television, January 4, 1967.

A classic! Outsiders with “Kinda Dead” from their second single So You’re My Sisters Boyfriend/Kinda Dead. Released on Nashville, NS 860. This clip is from the Swedish television show Popside, 1967. Many of the videos for Popside was made by the later famous film director Lasse Hallström, and probably this one too. Outsiders started in 1965, released three singles and were in London and recorded material for an album. Unfortunately, it was never released and the mastertapes are gone with the wind. In Sweden they backed up artists like Jimi Hendrix and Rolling Stones, and played a couple of times at the legendary Club Filips.
