My Life Story : It’s a girl thing

If the cover art on this single is anything to go by, ‘it’, in this case, would appear to be photocopying one’s fanny on the office copier. If, instead, you’re paying any heed to the lyrics (printed on the sleeve in an incomprehensible act of hubris), it would

appear

that [a]My Life Story[/a] are revisiting that playful theme in pop where (snurk, yip) girls are marvelled at for sometimes liking you, then – the fickle temptresses! – sometimes not liking you; a devilish problem previously explored with infinitely more suss and melody by Space‘s ‘Female of the Species’.

Jake Shillingford – a Divine Comedy for those unbothered by wit or taste – may be many things: an artist resoundingly dropped by a major, a failure and not very good at

all,

but he is also probably very, very lonely. Laugh at him.
