Monkee-Mania... In The '70s?

Ken Barnes, Who Put The Bomp!, 1976

I WROTE A prototype version of this piece in 1973, at a time when admitting you liked the Monkees was about as cool as driving a Rambler with racing stripes. Definitely unhip – after all, were they not the very epitome of manufactured plasticity and the soulless Hollywood approach to musical mass marketing?
