another underrated Blur diamond. Got that classic Blur sound of great harmonising between Damon and Graham and Graham's usual guitar chaos driving it all on. Graham's harmony on "it's never clever, uh-oh" in the chorus is genius.
I had read somewhere that Never Clever and Popscene were going to be the first two singles from an album that ended up unissued because Popscene did poorly, and that the rest of the tracks ended up as the Rubbish b-sides. Listening to the b-sides though, none of it's pop like Clever or Popscene, more like the Leisure psych stuff, so I'm doubtful, anyone have more info?
