Randy Scouse Git

"Randy Scouse Git" is a song written by Micky Dolenz in 1967 and recorded by The Monkees. It was the first song written by Dolenz to be commercially released, became a number 2 hit in the UK where it was retitled "Alternate Title" after the record company complained that the original title was somewhat "taboo to the British audience". Dolenz took the song's title from a phrase he had heard spoken on an episode of the British television series Till Death Us Do Part, which he had watched while in England; the song appeared on The Monkees TV series, on their album Headquarters, on several "Greatest Hits" albums. Peter Tork said. According to Dolenz, the song was written about a party that The Beatles threw for the Monkees at the Speakeasy nightclub in London. There are references in the song to the Beatles and to other party attendees such as Cass Elliot of The Mamas & the Papas and Dolenz's future wife, Top of the Pops "disc girl" Samantha Juste; the verses and chorus do not relate to each other, with the verses whimsically describing the party and the chorus consisting of Dolenz screaming bigoted remarks at an unseen, long-haired youth.

The phrase "Randy Scouse Git" in Britain directly translated to, according to Dolenz, "horny, Liverpudlian jerk", was taken from the 1960s British sitcom Till Death Us Do Part, in which it was used, by the loud-mouthed main character Alf Garnett, played by Cockney actor Warren Mitchell, to insult his Liverpudlian son-in-law, played by Tony Booth. The show was adapted into the American sitcom All in the Family, in which the writers replaced the phrase in American scripts with the epithet "Meathead". RCA Records in England told the band that they would not release the song unless it was given an "alternate title". By his own account, Dolenz said "OK,'Alternate Title' it is"; the song is played by all four Monkees with Dolenz on vocals and timpani, Davy Jones on backing vocals, Mike Nesmith on guitar, Peter Tork on piano and organ, producer Chip Douglas on bass guitar. Dolenz reprises lyrics from the song in "Love's What I Want", a bonus track to the 2016 Monkees album Good Times!. The Monkees: Micky Dolenz: lead vocal, timpani Peter Tork: organ, backing vocals Michael Nesmith: electric guitar Davy Jones: backing vocalswith: Chip Douglas: bass Bad Manners covered the song on their 1997 album Heavy Petting.

Carter the Unstoppable Sex Machine covered the song on the B-side of the single "Anytime Anyplace Anywhere" released on Rough Trade in 1990. Dolenz re-recorded the song on his 2012 album; the Orwells released a version to their fan mailing list on December 25, 2016
