EMF ('Epsom Mad Funkers') are an indie dance band from England. The band, from the Forest of Dean in Gloucestershire, came to prominence at the beginning of the 1990s. During its initial eight year run (1989a__1997), EMF had released three studio albums and had gone on hiatus and reformed twice. Their first single, 'Unbelievable,' reached number 3 in the UK Singles Chart, and was a number one hit on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart. Their debut album, Schubert Dip, went to number 3 in the UK Albums Chart. The name 'EMF' is an abbreviation of 'Epsom Mad Funkers', a name taken from a fan club of the band New Order. The initials were rumored at times to stand for something else.
