My Life Story
My Life Story are surely one of the most overlooked bands of the Britpop era and were certainly the only one to feature a chamber orchestra. They were cult icons and led by the charismatic Jake Shillingford and they carved out a sound that was uniquely theirs.
My Life Story championed a more classic pop sound but with a heartfelt sorrow. They had big hits with the likes of “Strumpet”, “The King of Kissingdom”, “It’s A Girl Thing” and “Sparkle” but sadly disappeared in 2000. They still perform occasionally today and pull good crowds but we would love a proper reunion.
Here’s the video for 1996 single “12 Reasons Why I Love Her”
