EMF's claim to fame was their 1991 US #1 hit, "Unbelieveable." It was also used (briefly)
when the Chicago Bulls were in their championship wins in the 1990s. The popular song was from their
album Schubert Dip.
EMF is the abbreviation for Epsom Mad Funkers, a name taken from a fan club of the band New Order.
(Knowing this, this easily explains EMF's style of music -- almost similar to that of New Order.)
EMF's music is compared to dance music, and Industrial. (Both styles similar to New Order.)
Industrial best describes the first two songs from Schubert Dip: "Children" and
"Long Summer Days." The rest of the album is very similar or close (more Pop) to that of the
style of the most popular song, "Unbelieveable."
Definitely in this case of "Unbelieveable" are "When You're Mine," "I Believe," and
"Girl Of An Age." A more Pop sound are on the rest: "Travelling Not Running" is Pop,
yet more serious sounding. The regular Pop sound (of the 1990s) has "Admit It," "Lies" and
EMF's Schubert Dip is a (1990s) Pop album. It is really not a highly acclaimed album, only to the
popularity of "Unbelievable." (This song was not a highly liked song in my opinion, yet it was catchy
enough to hit #1.)
EMF released only three albums from 1991 - 1995: Schubert Dip (1991), Stigma (1992), Cha
Cha Cha (1995). They've reformed in 2007, and most recently reformed again in 2012, based on the 21st
anniversary of Schubert Dip. "Unbelieveable" is their best-known song, yet they are probably
best remembered as a one-hit wonder.
