Catfish and The Bottlemen (Formed 2010) Catfish and The Bottlemen is a Welsh Indie Rock band consisting of the members, Van McCann, Johnny 'Bondy' Bond, Benji Blakeway, Bob Hall, Bill Bibby. They are better known for their singles, "Kathleen" and "Cocoon".
Formation: Lead singer Van McCann was born via an IVF treatment in Australia, and moved to Wales as a child. He started a band with the eldest brother of his best friend, Bill bibby, and Benji Blakeway, in 2010. They rehearsed by playing covers of the Beatles, and performing in the car parks of gigs, such as Kasabian.
Music Career: Communion records signed the band in 2013. Their first three singles, "Pacifier", "Rango", and "Homesick" were released in 2013. The band went on to sign with Island Records in 2014. They released their single "Kathleen" soon after. Zane Lowe aired all of their singles as his choice for "hottest record in the world". MTV ranked "Kathleen" at number one on their hottest tracks in April 2014. Reading and Leeds, Latitude, Kendal Calling, and Ibiza Rocks, are a few of the summer festivals the band performed at in 2014. Their debut album, "The Balcony" was released in September 2014. It charted number 10 in the UK album charts, in September 2014. At the BBC Music Awards, they won the BBC introducing award.
Coldplay, Justin Bieber, One Direction and James Bay were the other big winners at the 2016 Brit Awards in London.
Adele dominated at this year’s Brit Awards, taking home four of the biggest awards of the night in addition to her show-stopping performance of new single ‘When We Were Young’ at the end of the evening.
The 27 year old Tottenham-born singer was named best British Female Solo Artist at the start of the ceremony, and her night only got better from that point onwards, as she also netted the Global Success Award, best British Single for ‘Hello’ and the evening’s most prestigious prize, best British Album for 25.
Adele’s acceptance speeches were among the viral moments of the evening, as she became increasingly lost for words as the evening went on. “To come back after so long away and be so warmly received means so much,” she said, “I got really lost for a while and I didn't know if I'd ever come back. For you all to be so kind to me is so nice.”

From Kendrick Lamar to Slayer, this year is definitely one of the best.
Bonnaroo is in full swing and while we've seen some pretty impressive acts so far, the musical forecast shows things are not going to get quieter anytime soon.

Friday's line-up is a particularly mixed bag; where you've got music veterans the likes of 80s new wave legends Tears For Fears and 70s R&B band Earth Wind & Fire, you also got newer names such as LA duo Mini Mansions, who recently won acclaim for their second album 'The Great Pretenders', and Brit award winning UK chart toppers Royal Blood. Making some noise on the main What Stage throughout though are house producer Deadmau5, 'To Pimp a Butterfly' rapper Kendrick Lamar and roots rock collective Alabama Shakes.

Pharrell comes out on top at the annual BBC Music Awards.
The 2014 BBC Music Awards results came as no surprise as three pop favourites were sent home on Thursday (December 11th 2014) clutching awards - and deservedly so at that. So who were our winners for British Artist of the Year, International Artist of the Year, Song of the Year and BBC Introducing?
Ed wins British Artist Of The Year
Ed Sheeran - Suffolk singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran landed British Artist of the Year, despite being up against some serious competition with the likes of Sam Smith and rock legend David Bowie. But it was a no-brainer when his second studio album 'X' - produced by His Musical Majesty Rick Rubin - became a number one success and he also became Spotify's most streamed artist of all time. He's also had a good year in that he got to appear on Bob Geldof's Band Aid 30 tribute 'Do They Know It's Christmas?' as well as appearing at the first ever London edition of the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show.
