Perfect 10: Indie Bands Of The 90’s That Defined Britpop

When Britain rocked and rolled

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”
