"Here Come the Nice"
Ronnie "Plonk" Lane
Ian "Mac" McLagan
It was their first release on new label Immediate after moving from Decca.
It peaked at number 12 in the UK singles chart in 1967.
"Here Come the Nice" is written by Steve Marriott and Ronnie Lane.
For reasons unknown the single escaped censorship, despite the fact that the song makes overt drug references and mentions the taking of "speed," a popular drug with mods:
He makes me feel like no-one else could/He knows what I want/He's got what I need/He's always there/If I need some speed.
Under the stricter Don Arden the single would never have seen the light of day, however Andrew Loog Oldham at Immediate had no problems with the song's release.
The song title has often been misquoted as "Here Comes the Nice" after a record sleeve misprint.
|“||He makes me feel like no-one else could, he knows what I want, he's got what I need, he's always there, if I need some speed.||”|
The title of the song comes from the comedian Lord Buckley monologue,
The single's B-side "Talk To You" is a more straight-forward punchy R&B song; the song's subject matter is said to be about Marriott's romantic relationship with Chrissie, super model Jean Shrimpton's younger sister.

|“White Light/White Heat”|
The hippie counterculture was very critical of amphetamines due to the behaviors they cause; beat writer Allen Ginsberg wrote that users ran the risk of becoming a "Frankenstein speed freak".The mods, being working class, were often opposed to the slower, more contemplative, meditative ideals and lifestyle of the hippies. Amphetamines therefore suited their high energy and aggressive aesthetics and lifestyle, whether it was dancing to soul music at all night parties, or fighting rockers.
The Beat Generation used amphetamine extensively, mainly under the Benzedrine brand name.
Jack Kerouac was a particularly avid user of amphetamine, which was said to provide him with the stamina needed to work on his novels for extended periods of time.Amphetamines are frequently mentioned in the work of American journalist Hunter S. Thompson. Speed appears not only amongst the astoundingly diverse and voluminous inventory of drugs Thompson consumed for what could broadly be defined as recreational purposes, but also receives frequent, explicit mention as an essential component of his writing toolkit, such as in his "Author's Note" in Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail '72:
"One afternoon about three days ago [the publishers] showed up at my door with no warning, and loaded about forty pounds of supplies into the room: two cases of Mexican beer, four quarts of gin, a dozen grapefruits, and enough speed to alter the outcome of six Super Bowls. ... Meanwhile, my room at the Seal Rock Inn is [now] filling up with people who seem on the verge of hysteria at the sight of me still sitting here wasting time on a rambling introduction, with the final chapter still unwritten and the presses scheduled to start rolling in twenty-four hours . . . . but unless somebody shows up pretty soon with extremely powerful speed, there might not be a final chapter. About four fingers of king-hell Crank would do the trick, but I am not optimistic."
In Science famous mathematician Paul Erdős took amphetamines, and once won a bet from his friend Ron Graham, who bet him $500 that he could not stop taking the drug for a month. Erdos won the bet, but complained during his abstinence that mathematics had been set back by a month:"Before, when I looked at a piece of blank paper my mind was filled with ideas. Now all I see is a blank piece of paper."
After he won the bet, he promptly resumed his amphetamine habit.
The Who's 1965 iconic Mod/youth anthem My Generation, famously re-creates in Roger Daltrey's vocals, the effect of amphetamines on the ability to speak. The pills accelerate the brain's processes to the degree that ideas flow faster than the ability to communicate them by speech, resulting in the characteristic stuttering of words. At various times, in the period 1965-66, either to avoid controversy or to keep the true drug-related reason a secret among "those in the know", Pete Townshend stated the stuttering was a protest at the government's poor record of national education opportunities. However, several years later he later spilled the beans that it mimicked someone under the effect of amphetamines.
Many rock'n'roll bands have named themselves after amphetamines and drug slang surrounding them. Motorhead named themselves after the slang for an amphetamine addict. Interestingly, Lemmy Kilmister, said amphetamines were the only drug that he found any benefit in using, saying:" first got into speed because it was a utilitarian drug and kept you awake when you needed to be awake, when otherwise you'd just be flat out on your back. If you drive to Glasgow for nine hours in the back of a sweaty truck you don't really feel like going onstage feeling all bright and breezy... It's the only drug I've found that I can get on with, and I've tried them all — except smack and morphine: I've never fixed anything."Films have been created that are either visually or aesthetically influenced by the perceived effects of amphetamine, or that portray amphetamine use in their plotlines.For example, the film Spun portrays the life of methamphetamine addicts, their social interactions, and the impact the drug has on their lives.In Requiem for a Dream, the character Sara Goldfarb suffers amphetamine psychosis after having been prescribed amphetamines as a weight loss drug; she imagines that her refrigerator is trying to devour her.A Scanner Darkly (as well as the novel of the same name) contains a scene where the character Charles Freck suffers from formication.
For the experience and meaning of life song
It is known that US paper currency in the general circulation is contaminated with cocaine. Several mechanisms have been offered to explain this finding, including contamination due to handling during drug deals and the use of rolled up bills for snorting. Drug is then transferred from one contaminated bill to others during counting in financial institutions. The possibility of contamination of currency with other drugs has not been reported. In this study, the author reports the analysis of 10 randomly collected US$ 1 bills from five cities, for cocaine, heroin, 6-acetylmorphine (6-AM), morphine, codeine, methamphetamine, amphetamine and phencyclidine (PCP). Bills were immersed in acetonitrile for 2h prior to extraction and GC-MS analysis. Results showed that 92% of the bills were positive for cocaine with a mean amount of 28.75+/-139.07&mgr;g per bill, a median of 1.37&mgr;g per bill, and a range of 0.01-922.72&mgr;g per bill. Heroin was detected in seven bills in amounts ranging from 0.03 to 168.50&mgr;g per bill: 6-AM and morphine were detected in three bills; methamphetamine and amphetamine in three and one bills, respectively, and PCP was detected in two bills in amounts of 0.78 and 1.87&mgr;g per bill. Codeine was not detected in any of the US$ 1 bills analyzed. This study demonstrated that although paper currency was most often contaminated with cocaine, other drugs of abuse may be detected in
