Always dancing around the musical intersection between experimentalhttp://office.cdbaby.com/editors/editalbum.php?id=242346 and conventional yet relentlessly traditional in the delivery of unaffected and passionate live rock and roll, Bluebottle Kiss is a band where it is impossible to discount the nurture behind their nature.
Founding member Jamie Hutchings grew up on his older brother’s collection of vibrant Australian garage rock before moving from Radio Birdman and The Saints into the more esoteric territory of The Laughing Clowns and The Church. Joining the exploding Australian scene of the mid 90s granted front row seats and support slots to the unsung genius of bands like Crow and The Underground Lovers. Since that time Bluebottle Kiss has toured nationally and internationally continually supporting bands ranging from Beck to Midnight Oil to Interpol and numerous acts in between. They have also licensed albums for local release in the US and Europe.
The foundation of five previous albums and hundreds of live shows since Bluebottle Kiss was formed in 1995 has now culminated in the profound sonic buffet of the soon to be released double album Doubt Seeds. From minimalist soundscapes to rich celestial-like pop and white-hot, free-jazz wigouts, Doubt Seeds checks the length and breadth of this unique act’s lucid imagination. An essential stop for adventurers and anyone with an interest in the history and future of music!
