About us

EMP – Alternative Clothing and Merchandise since 1986

At EMP, we’re not afraid to be different and we’re not afraid to stand out from the crowd. It’s an approach that’s worked for us for 30 years, ever since a small team in Lingen, Germany set out to start a mail order business that gave alternative music fans the opportunity to get all of their merchandise from one extensive catalogue.
Today, we’re Europe’s top provider of alternative clothing and music, TV, film and video game merchandise, with over 70,000 products available online and the revered EMP Catalogue still appointment reading for our many loyal customers!

Still not sold? We’re 100% confident that once you go EMP, you’ll never want to shop anywhere else.
We have no minimum order value, low postage costs, and offer a 100% returns policy.
Our friendly customer service team are always on hand to help out with orders, returns and any other issues you may have.
Our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram are regularly updated with blog posts, daily deals and lively chat from the EMP community and our YouTube channel features contributions from Hill and Beez of the That’s Not Metal podcast!

But if you still need a sweetener, how does a 10% discount sound? All you need to do is sign up to the EMP Newsletter and you’ll receive your discount voucher, as well as other regular discounts and details of our latest products, promotions and more.
