Bandulu (a Jamaican patois word meaning criminal) were a British electronic music and reggae group consisting of Jamie Bissmire, John O'Connell and Lucien Thompson. The music often relies heavily on techno and dub elements. Releasing their first two albums on Creation Records sublabel Infonet, the group has also released albums on Blanco y Negro, Foundation Sound Works and Music Man Records. The trio have also recorded under various names such as Thunderground, New Adult and Sons of the Subway.

Under multiple names, the group did several sessions for Peel's show and were played on his programmes during the 90's. In the new century, Peel rarely played any tracks from the group, although he did give airtime to Jamie Bissmire's solo projects.
