Catfish & the Bottlemen What's In My Bag?

Van and Bondy from British rock band Catfish and the Bottlemen went record shopping at Amoeba Hollywood recently and shared a few of their favorite lyricists, from Father John Misty to Eels, and picked up a fantastic mix of rock, jazz, film music, psych and more.

Catfish & the Bottlemen The Ride

Catfish and the Bottlemen formed in 2007 in Llandudno, Wales by Ryan Evan "Van" McCann. He was later joined by Benjamin Blakeway, Robert Hall, and Johnny Bond. The band is named after Catfish the Bottleman, a busker McCann frequently encountered during his childhood in Sydney, Australia. They got their start by playing in parking lots after other big name indie acts finished their shows. In 2013, the band signed to Communion Records, later signing to Island for their debut studio album, 2014's The Balcony.

In May of this year, the band released their sophomore LP, The Ride, via Capitol Records. The album peaked at number 28 on the US Billboard Top 200 charts. They also took home the award for British Breakthrough Act at the 2016 Brit Awards. The band is currently on tour in the United States, including opening a few dates with Mumford & Sons.

DJ Spinna What's In My Bag? Amoeba Music

"I'm gonna give away a little b-boy secret...this record by Cerrone, 'Look For Love,' is a very popular b-boy break," says DJ Spinna of the 7" released by the Cotillion label.
