Ghoul Bus Presents


From the remnants of the last embers of their local scene to blazing their own trail in the DIY sphere. Buds. first met with an aim to make music for putting your fist in the air and singing along in spite of your existential dread. Showing love for all things anthemic they combine catchy hooks with the passion of punk, emo, hardcore or just whatever they are feeling at the time.

They released their first EP: Buds. in 2019 on Ol’ Boat Records. Made up of unused material to set the blueprint of their loud catchy songs for small grotty venues.

In 2021 they followed up with their second EP: Full on Beth Shalom records taking the sound of their debut into a far more existential route and focusing heavily on mental health. Once they were able to return to touring, the following year saw Buds. play more shows than they’d ever played before in a single year including festival slots at Teddy Rocks and 2000 Trees.


H_ngm_n are an emo/punk two piece from Brighton UK. Catchy hook-riddled sad songs over powerful drums, with a bunch of mathy time signatures thrown in for good measure. They've toured throughout the UK & Europe, and put out their EP "I Don't Wanna Go Home" via Real Ghost Records in November 2018.


Dumfun are a potent force and ones to watch in the Alt Rock scene, first making a name for themselves in Brighton after a consistent wave of dynamic live performances. The trio first came to fruition in 2022, when Conah White (guitar/lead vocals) enlisted the aid of old friend Sophie Douglas (bass/vocals) and some say long-lost twin Jed Johnson (drums) to form this exciting new music project. Simply put, the project was born out of the ideas and emotions the band aimed to evoke. After all, it’s all just a bit of Dumfun.

Give Up
