Statement from the band pre-Carter

The addition of Tim to the line up has injected a serious amount of energy back into the band, god knows what state we'll all be in afterwards! We are all really looking forward to the shows even though it is just 45 minutes.....we'll make you sweat for sure!! All going well we will be showing off some proper nostalgia vibes on stage from the 90's rave days :)....glow sticks at the ready please

See you all soon....Love EMF

Happy Birthday to us!

Today turns 12 years old!! Millions of thanks go out to all the fans who keep us going, and especially to the band... without them, none of this would be possible!

Live Guitarist Replaced!

Do to working commitments Laurence Hughes the current dep guitarist for Ian will no longer be providing his services to the band.

Tim Stephens from Portsmouth will take over duties as of now. The band held auditions in Birmingham on Saturday 11th October and Tim was the man for the job.

Comment from the band...

Filling Ian's large boots hasn't been an easy task for us, Ian has a special kind of energy which comes from his punk roots coupled with his classical upbringing makes him even more special as a guitarist. This is the first time we have felt that energy again. Tim will definitely bring more than a little extra to the live show, you can count on that! As a fan of the band already the passion he showed us was obvious that getting this gig means a lot to him. The energy he has is second to none, Mark even broke a cymbal during the session so you have some indication of the power Tim influences on us playing live.... to add to this he's not bad looking either... the ladies will love him!!

Festival Cancelled

The Portsmouth & Southsea Festival has been cancelled. Refunds are available at point of purchase.

Come out and see Mark

"I'm playing at a Music equipment Exhibition next week (Wednesday 12th) in Frankfurt, Germany.

Basically I will be working there at the Pearl Drums booth..this is what I do. We have what we call a sound cabin at the booth which is basically a large glass studio. Drummers and percussionists perform inside the cabin so that it keeps the noise down, people watching can hear everything perfectly but see the artist up close.

I'm performing from 10am, I'm doing three 20 minute sets. I will be playing along to specially mixed EMF which don't include the drums....I play them live over the backing tracks.

The tracks I'm doing are....They're here, Dog, Unbelievable, Search & Destroy and possibly Getting through.

The show is called The Frankfurt Messe it starts on Wednesday 12th and finishes on Saturday 15th. Pearl will be located in Hall 3.0 stand No. E61 and E59."

New songs!

Out of the archives comes a rare, newly discovered treat...

2 demos done at the end of 1993 - one is called "Junki Starr" and never appeared on any albums; the other is called "Open Eyes" and is a rough version of the song "Too Much."

Check out the MySpace page for the tracks!



Okay, I've got the YouTube channel started and the videos are coming slowly... keep checking throughout the day/night for more videos. (I think you can also search for EMF and Astoria and you'll find them.) The quality is much worse than the originals, so I apologize... YouTube really shrinks the files down.

Videos down

Due to an overwhelming response to the Astoria videos, the server has been crashing all day. I'm taking them down and moving them to a personalized channel on YouTube. Sorry for the inconvenience... stay tuned...

Astoria video - FINALLY!

I know it took a long time, but FINALLY, you can see video from the Astoria reunion gig from 2001! You can find it on the video page! Hope it was worth the wait (I think it is!)
