When You’re Dealing With Infinity Anything Is Pozible

November 10, 2013


Dear Comrades,

Again, thanks to all of you have got on board our Pozible crowd funding campaign to get the Infinity Broke – River Mirrors album out next year. Also if you came down to our show at Black Wire last Friday night thanks for putting up with my stench. So far with what’s been pledged we’ll be able to get the album manufactured onto cd as well as 180gm vinyl. Nice. With what’s trickling in we’re getting close to covering mastering as well. However we’d love it if those beyond this incredibly discerning listening circle you belong to could hear the album when it comes out. So, we’re hoping to keep raising funds to cover publicity and advertising costs. There’s still time left so we’ve decided to release some new pledges.

 Given how popular the limited edition CDR’s were when we launched this (the whole lot sold out in two days) we have decided to launch a new CDR treat.


(compiled from live shows and radio live sessions – none of these recordings have been available previously and will be available as a full length CDR one off).

 Again, these are extremely limited. We’ve bundled them up in four different formats –

 -  Infinity Broke – River Mirrors signed cd

+ Bluebottle Kiss CDR 1999 – 2007 live limited edition album  -  $58

 -  Infinity Broke – River Mirrors signed 180gm vinyl LP ( includes download)

+ Bluebottle Kiss CDR 1999 – 2007 live limited edition CDR -  $70

 - Infinity Broke – River Mirrors signed cd

+ Bluebottle Kiss CDR 1999 – 2007 live limited edition album

+ limited edition Infinity Broke t – shirt (let us know your size) – $85

-  Infinity Broke – River Mirrors signed 180gm vinyl LP (ncludes download)

+ Bluebottle Kiss CDR 1999 – 2007 live limited edition album

+ limited edition Infinty Broke t-shirt (let us know your size) – $95

to check this out go to our Pozible Headquarters

Dear Friends

As I may have informed you, myself, Jared, Reuben and Scott have named our next phase/band Infinity Broke. We have lots of news, firstly -


Yes that’s right. We need your help. The album ‘River Mirrors’ is recorded and mixed however we need to fund the pressing on C.D and vinyl (yes) plus mastering, publicity and on it goes. Never fear though, it’s not money for nothing! We have 59 days to raise $5000. You can pledge anything from a little to a lot, the pledges start at C.D and vinyl versions of the new album all the way through to t-shirts, pseudo box-sets, one-off unreleased recordings on lovingly burnt CDR, live performances in your lounge room,the list goes on, it’s really stretched our collective imaginations! Please pass this on to your friends, loved ones, parents and pets. It will really help. Just go  here



This is the first taste of the new album. Because we trust you so much you can ‘pay what you want’. This is available for download on Bandcamp and it comes with an exclusive non-album one-man-band four track recording as a b-side called ‘Slaughterhouse Jive’ for all you Vonnegut nuts. Find it here 


This seems as good an excuse as any for a live performance. This is our first show under the ‘Infinity Broke’ moniker and a chance for you to get a look in on the new album. Great lineup, good price and you can bring your own beer if you want to.





I will post the starting times once I know them but yes, it will be at night time.

We have a facebook page and an event there too.

INFINITY BROKE: Gig/Album News etc

Infinity Broke by Justin Blessas

Infinity Broke by Justin Blessas

Some of you may have witnessed the odd sporadic appearance of ‘Jamie Hutchings and the Goldfish Memories’. We’ve decided to rename the band ‘Infinity Broke’. Our album is mixed and ready to be mastered and will be released next year once we work out all the release stuff…we have a Facebook profile here:


We’ll be putting a downloadable single out in a little while and to celebrate it we’ll be playing a show. It’s a way off but it’s going to be a lot of fun. Black Wire, is a not for profit record store/performance space and is also BYO so it’ll be informal, loose and fun.

Fri 1st November

Black Wire Records

219 Parramatta Rd, Annandale NSW

Infinity Broke

+ Ted Danson With Wolves

+ Trent Marden Ich (The Holy Soul)

$12 BYO


We’ll have news about the single soon. Excitement.



With all this excitement, I felt it was time the website got an update. Mark has applied some spit and polish and you can check it all out while you’re paying us a visit. The idea is it’s a one-stop shop for all my musical endeavours past and present. Unfortunately, the old Bluebottle Kiss website is pretty much a graveyard. Since Bluebottle Kiss is now defunct, the website is no longer being updated. If you have queries regarding solo stuff, Infinity Broke stuff or Bluebottle Kiss stuff (though be aware Bluebottle has been inactive since 2007) drop me a line at  jamie[at]bluebottlekiss[dot]com

That is all.

Last Shows of the Year! Sydney & Newcastle

November 27, 2012

Gentle Men and Gentle Women,

Some time has passed since I last cornered you with one of my one-way monologues. I would greatly appreciate you allowing me to get a few matters off my chest. It gets so cold and lonely on the interweb.


529 Hunter Street

+ Hope Springs (QLD) + Indian Gun

Hay Street 
(Off Gerorge Street)

Haymarket (under escalators opposite Harrys Cafe de Wheels)
+ Bearhug + Hope Springs

These two shows will feature Jared on drums, Reuben on bass and Scott on second percussion/guitar and me. We are recording a new album in a shearing shed in Bathurst in January and these two shows are the last two we’re doing before heading out there to melt. The volume will be up. It’d be nice if you could come.


Loads of L.O. artists at Notes in Newtown. Solo set by Jamie around 10pm or so.


Not too long ago we went to France for a week of shows. The lineup was Reuben, Sophie, Scott and myself. There’s some decent quality footage of Reubs, Scott and me doing two new tunes at the Binic Folk Blues festival. The two songs are – “Only the Desert Grows” and “Monsoon.” They’re a little loose in parts, but are a reasonable indication of where the new album will be headed. Watch HERE

Then Scott and I did a week long tour of China. Here’s some footage of us playing in a Hutong for a Chinese music website.


Here’s an account of Scott and I touring China in Mess and Noise


What am I gonna do with them?

Buy any two of my solo albums and I’ll give you something free. A mintie or a stamp or a c.d or something. I don’t know yet.

Some of their albums are pretty good.

France And China Tour: August 1-12

July 25, 2012


 My brother Scott and I are getting ready to jump on the plane to meet our bass player, Reuben, and my pianist sister, Sophie, for our run of shows as “Jamie Hutchings And The Goldfish Memories” in France (August 1-5) followed by Scott and I doing a duo tour on our maiden voyage  to China. (August 8-12).

Also, my website is back in the land of the living. It was hacked by a bunch of fun lovers from the other side of our fine planet, but anyway – it’s back – and for the first time you can now read all my European Tour Diaries chronologically on the one page.

 If you’re over in France or China the dates and details are listed on our Upcoming Gigs page.

PS The photos in this post were taken by a brilliant photographer by the name of Jim Rolon

Tune in to  Fbi 94.5 at 4pm Thursday the afternoon of the Sydney show when I will be interviewed and will play an acoustic song or two.

Look at our calendar for dates in France and China. It’s gonna be grouse.

There will be a fair bit of stuff at the Sando show at the merch stand, Bluebottle and solo if you want to do the Bandcamp thing face to face.
