Second-last single went in at number 44. Last single, 20. Do we have to draw you a graph? The Hype Halving Rule remains mathematically valid: this’ll likely hit the Top Ten, though mainly because the Top Ten is limp and this is some ladrock equivalent of Scouting For Girls. “God bless the band/They’re doing all they can”, Liam Fray laments at its climax, and we’d sympathise. The lyrics might contain a vivid dissection of failing relationships, but musically it’s so under-produced it’s a bit like saying Ronnie Corbett is ‘doing all he can’ as goalie for Tottenham Hotspur.
