The front cover of Katapult is our homage/pastiche of the Clean’s excellent 1990 album Vehicle. Although the album is semi-obscure we felt that it was a good look and any big up to the Clean is good by us.
The album is named Katapult as a reference to Guided By Voices awesome 1992 album Propellor. They called it that cos they wanted it to propel them to success. We called ours Katapult for similar reasons (i.e. to catapult us to less derision)
It’s also spelt with a K as a reference to George Herriman’s peerless surrealistic cartoon strip “Krazy Kat”
