Last month's incredible launch night saw an impromptu DJ set from Carl Barat alongside his former Dirty Pretty Thing bandmate Didz Hammond, plus you all rubbed shoulders with the likes of Lee Mavers (The La's), Drew McConnell (Babyshambles) and some of London's finest indie heroes.

This month we bring to you a very special live act in the shape of THE ASBO KID, featuring James Atkin - responsible for one of the best known tracks of the 90s, Unbelievable with his band "EMF", he went on to have massive success clocking up a U.S no.1 single and a platinum selling album. Alongside him is Justin Welch, Elastica drummer - Britpop legends who in the 90s scored a string of Top 20 hits including the fantastic 'Connection' plus a number one album 'Elastica' and even played in an early incarnation of Suede!

We'll also see Justin jump on the decks alongside his wonderful wife, Mew Welch - former Elastica and Heave keyboardist plus sets from Ollie Russian and Ronnie Joice!

The night is part of INTERNATIONAL HI-FI who host the main room with "guitar-based radio-friendly unit-shifters" from Iain Baker (NME Radio) + John Downfall (Cheap$kates) where you'll certainly hear; Hot Chip, Kaiser Chiefs, Blur, MGMT, Strokes, Smiths, Bloc Party, Killers, AC/DC, Pixies and a whole lot more!

Oh, and if you're unsure where it's at..

Today marks the day of the tragic loss of the King of Pop...

His music touched hearts of everyone Worldwide and will be sadly missed...

Rest in peace EMF x

Statement from EMF

EMF the band regrets to announce that they will no longer be able to play any live shows for the foreseeable future. Band members work commitments outside EMF have made it impossible for them to find the time to commit to an adequate live schedule. This comes as a great disappointment to the band as there is nothing that the guys like better than playing live but it has proved impossible to find the time to give their live shows the care and attention that EMF have always prided themselves on.

EMF would like to apologise to any fans that were hoping to see them live during 2009.

Thank you for your support and love over the years.

EMF, May 2009
