Bluebottle Kiss' Jamie Hutchings goes for broke
He was a fixture on the Aussie live circuit until recently and Bluebottle Kiss main-man Jamie Hutchings is returning to the fray with a new album and band, Infinity Broke.
Infinity Broke's new album “River Mirrors” is out now via Jamie's own label Come to the Dark Side Luke and the band has kicked off a national album launch tour of Australia.
Infinity Broke is the new project of Jamie Hutchings and Jared Harrison of influential Sydney group Bluebottle Kiss, alongside Jamie’s brother Scott Hutchings and long-term collaborator Reuben Wills.
Bluebottle Kiss were one of Sydney's most influential indie rock groups of the ‘90s and ‘00s. River Mirrors marks a musical transition for Hutchings and Infinity Broke – it’s a return of musical electricity, particularly in Jamie’s often improvised, jagged guitar playing. The album is notably heavy on percussion, with drummer Scott Hutchings playing on a gas tank, metal bin, snare and floor tom.
“River Mirrors” was recorded mostly live to one inch analogue tape with Chris Colquhoun over two long weekends in a former shearing shed on a rural property in Western NSW.
If you’re sophisticated enough to love being hypnotized by early ‘70s improvisers like Can or On the Corner era Miles Davis, but you like getting beaten around by The Replacements or Hüsker Dü, we are told you will approve of Infinity Broke.
