The phrase was possibly first used by an art/culture critic named Sherman L. Morrow in 1965. He was describing the social makeup of the the NY pop art scene, particularly Andy Warhol and his "factory" entourage. I believe he originally described the "Out and the In Crowd" of the NYC art community. The popular song by the same name was originally recorded by Dobie Gray in 1965. The Mamas & The Papas recorded it in the late 1960's and Bryan Ferry did so much later.
