James Atkin of EMF, “Unbelievable” – Elementary School Teacher
Another late 80s / early 90s British band that had one smash hit and faded into obscurity, EMF, along with Jesus Jones, brought a fusion of light techno and rock & roll with their hit “Unbelievable.” The song hit #1 on the United States Billboard chart and made them overnight stars.
They then dropped out of the spotlight until 1995 for their second album, only to find that their style of music was already obsolete. The band dissolved, and lead singer James Atkin decided to pursue a career as an elementary school music teacher. No word on whether he plays his band’s one huge hit for his class, who probably are into One Direction anyways.
