Catfish and the Bottlemen Catfish and the Bottlemen - or to continue an abbreviation theme CATBM - have been blessed with a fairly meteoric rise to fame over the last 12 months, which although they find hard to comprehend themselves, is no surprise to anybody who follows the music industry and certainly not to the team at Gig Junkies HQ.
