I love EMF - obviously - but the only other music that I have which comes close is Jesus Jones (I Have all of their releases besides Culture Vulture EP - which I really need to get!).

On Amazon, there was a suggestion that a 90s band called 'Space' was influenced by EMF - anyone ever heard of them? What about 'Ned's Atomic Dustbin'? I have never heard of them. but a friend told me they were like EMF.

Can anyone suggest similar bands? I really need to expand my music collection, but I know what I enjoy.

hey jason. ned's are a great band too. i suggest you to listen god fodder, that's my favorite atomic album.

there are clear differences with jesus jones & emf, i can tell you, but give a try.

Ned's is a great band - not exactly like EMF and JJ, but really good. Start with Godfodder for sure.

i suggest to listen soda stereo - dynamo CD

Soda stereo is an argentinian huge band, let's say it's the latinoamerican most important band, and they also a lot of bands have been influenced by them.

they were influenced always by uk bands, and in the 90' 100% sure emf and jesus jones influenced them

i suggest dynamo for your listening pleasure.

plus ian baker worked with them in sueño stereo, the next record

here are a tv show they gave in 1992 wearing an old anarchic t shirt Very Happy

the fact that emf and jesus jones influenced Soda Stereo is a real honor to be proud of.

I have only heard one Ned's song, but it seems cool. Thanks for all the suggestions - keep 'em coming.

Of course, none of these guys touch the Mighty Mef Exclamation

Hi
Space were a bit odd but they did some good songs. Female of the Species and In my Neighbourhood (I think). They were from Liverpool. Wouldn't say they were like the boys though. What about KLF?

Yeah, I have been thinking about KLF too. Ah... I love me the early 90s Exclamation

They sure don't make music anymore like they did in the early 90s!

Ned's is awesome. I have been listening to "Are You Normal?" - great stuff.

Another thing I miss about the early 90s is having hair Laughing

Just noticed this thread -- no one mentioned PWEI?

A little harder than EMF, but Pop Will Eat Itself have a similar dance/rock hybrid (more rock than MEF, but you get the idea).

Also - a Canadian band called Pure have always seemed like distant cousins to this scene... their first album (or 2) anyways - a disc called Purefenalia. Well worth checking IMHO.

Well, I madly love Ned's now. I have all of their albums, except for a few rare remix/ b-sides releases.

I listened to a bit of PWEI, but I think it was too heavy for me.

Really, all I want is a new EMF album ... Razz

Depends on what PWEI you heard - check out early to mid period stuff. A little heavier, but not as harsh as Dos Dedos... check Box Frenzy and/or This Is The Day...

You may still not like them, but I think those would be CLOSER to the sound you're looking for...
