London-based orchestral indiepop band active through TheNineties. Very much a vehicle for frontman Jake Shillingford, whose songs tended to express a very cynical view of modern (and particularly London) life.

By the time orchestral arrangements in pop came back into fashion in the mid-1990s, My Life Story had already been plugging away for several years and were well-placed to take advantage of the trend. Their second album ''The Golden Mile'' brought them moderate success but they never had quite the same critical cachet or popular success as Music/TheDivineComedy. After being dropped by Creator/ParlophoneRecords, a third album, ''Joined Up Talking'', attempted to reposition them as a traditional guitar-bass-drums-keybaords quartet, albeit still with orchestral backing.

* LondonTown / TheLondonUnderground - "The Lady Is A Tramp", "Angel" (as in Angel, Islington), and a few others. Also the title of the album ''Mornington Crescent'', supposedly a concept album about Jake moving to London, though it's not exactly obvious.

Added DiffLines:
