I find this name fairly weird, where does it derive from?

1 Answer 1


The name comes from 'Van' Mccann's, the lead singer, first musical memory. as a child, he and his parents spent a large amount of time travelling Australia. He came across a street busker in Sydney who played music using beer bottles. The busker went by the name of Catfish The Bottleman so he used this as the name of his band.
