Tyrannosaurus: Poetry And Music

Derek Boltwood, Record Mirror, 9 November 1968

POLYGONAMOUS pop. Let me explain — pop has many sides to it, thus polygonamous. All this stuff that comprises the majority of the charts and what's heard on radio is rarely rubbish. Mostly it's nice listening and not deep and not meant to be deep and I'll sing along with bubblegum music any day because I don't object. And who am I to object, anyway?
