In the early summer of 1973 Geertjan Hessing, Erwin van Prehn, Aart Mol and Cees Bergman decided to form a band. Then they were already well-known musicians in their town Leiden, had the experience of working together in a variety of musical groups, but did not achieve notable success. In that year, all four vacationing on the Spanish seaside resort of Lloret de Mar. During rest and began to emerge specific creative plans, whose implementation began shortly with full dedication. The guys gave a word to each other - "Whatever happens, we'll stay together." Numerous resorts girlfriend, listening to these wild plans, guys cheering words, such as "We hope that you have a great success." Back home, friends immediately set to work, abandoned everything and even school to concentrate on music. With the help of his manager Aad van Delft, the group chose September 1, 1973 the official date of its foundation. A little more than a month in the group joined more and keyboardist Michael Eschauzier. Barry Hay, singer "Golden Earring", suggested the name for the group: "Catapult". A stylized logo to this title developed Wim T. Schippers. November 23 group first performed as the opening act "Golden Earring" concert hall "Maassluis Sport Hall". Within a month after the debut of the band recorded their first single "Hit The Big Time" under the direction of Jaap Eggermont - former drummer "Golden Earring". As the name suggests, the song is telling us about the rest of Spain. It was vulgar, and at the same time, catchy energetic song, style, fit into a moderate glitter rock. By combining extravagant costumes, hairstyles and screaming incendiary rock 'n' roll, "Catapult" soon became a Dutch "response" to the occurrence of such British glam giants like "The Sweet", "Mud" and "Slade". In April 1974, Elmer Veerhoff replaced the deceased Michael Eschauzier, so formed has the final composition of the group. In 1974 - 1976 years, the band recorded several hits: "Let Your Hair Hang Down", "Teeny-Bopper Band", "Seven Eleven" and "The Stealer". These studies showed that the "Catapult", unlike many of his contemporaries, was not a one-hit group. Songs written elaborately attractive arrangements, relationships in the group are added successfully. High haunting voice Cees Bergman gives a special attraction. All these qualities, which is operated by the producer Jaap Eggermont. "Catapult" also became one of the first pop groups, an integral part of the sound which became synthesizers. During the first years of existence, the band staged surprises and during live performances. To the absolute horror of some club owners, "Catapult" during performances feared not very liberties and heavy rock. It was a secret passion to the group, which is often reflected in the songs placed on the reverse side of the single-coil plates, and in the album tracks such as "Springtime Ballyhoo" and "Run For My Wife". So, by the time of release in 1974 his only official album, the band was already at the peak of popularity. Records sold well and the band performed weekly. But their success was limited not only by the Netherlands, the plate also sold in Austria, Switzerland, Germany, France and England, where their records are often heard in the air. The Group also acquired fame and in Belgium, where often goes on tour. Dutch music press also kept "nose to the wind" to the kinds of innovations in the field of glam-rock, respectively without losing sight of any genre innovations. While continuing to successfully collect the audience at his concerts, the group from time to time it was necessary to issue all new singles. The single titled "Here We Go" was one of the last to hit the charts. Group has become a hostage of the dying musical style and then gave his farewell concert in the "Feest Paleis" Belgian Beervelde December 23, 1979.
