Budapest were a melancholic post-grunge rock band from Leamington Spa, England.

The band were formed in 1999 by John Garrison (vocals, guitar) with Adrian Kelley (bass), Mark Walworth (guitar), Paul Possart (drums) and Chris Pemberton (piano, keyboards). After recording the material for their first album, Too Blind to Hear, Walworth committed suicide. Although shocked by this event, the remaining members of the band (Walworth being replaced by lead guitar Matt Parker later on) carried on with the release of the album, in tribute to their deceased partner. It appeared in September 2002 in UK, and was released in the United States in March 2004.

The follow-up 2005 album, Head Towards The Dawn, (on which Garrison and Pemberton were the only remaining band players) was released in Spain only.

The band announced the end in the later part of 2006.

John Garrison went on to a solo career.
