A key piece of the ”Seattle of the South” epic Newcastle 90’s rock music scene (a 1995 census found Newy to be the most musical city in the world per capita as bands played 7 nights per week along the famed Hunter & King St strips at venues like The Castle, The JR, The Family, The Wicko, The Star, The Workers, Jacks On King, The Cambridge, Fanny’s, The Del, The Great Northern, The Hunter, The Lass, SJ’s, The Pit, The Blackbox, The Palais, The Leagues Club, The Brewery, The Grand,The Kent, The Civic Theater & Young People’s Theater - and that is just the city venues!
a teenage virtuoso in the competitive scene, “Young Jim” was tutored and mentored by Oz Röck icons such as The Screaming Jets, Mark “Tinno” Tinson (ABC/Ted Mulry Gang/Rabbit/The Heroes), Jezebel’s Trash, Lo-Tel, Valhalla & Little Hornet’s Tyrone Penshorn and Sydney scene stalwarts The Candy Harlots, Baby Animals, Taboo, Mortal Sin, Killswitch, Grinspoon, Spencer Jones (UK),Steve Balbi&The Poor.
By 18, ”Young”(still makes us laugh!)Jimi had crossed the Nullabor half a dozen times and had already made his first record, was endorsed by a selection of his favorite companies and had been kicked out of more dry bars than most Aussies have ever driven past.
With his lovely outgoing nature and his many talents in all areas of the music industry and already a legendary artist and seasoned pro at just 18, the following decade for Jimi James Papworth would see him jug numerous ban and career paths in several different cities and states - sometimes on several continents in tandem and became the most recognized face in world touring and saw a great number of special friendships with the biggest names in music always able to gain the fullest attention and efforts and unrivaled commitment to the greatness of the spirit of the greatest moments in Röck history and complete disdain for self-indulgence and waffling musicians killing all that great music!
Now some 20yrs into the magical Röckstar world without losing his mind or ever setting foot in a single rehab facility (except once to break a friend who will be revealed in his life story autobiography currently being compiled from the last two decades of documenting his experiences and then locking the manuscripts away from view to protect his closest friends and colleagues from the scrutiny of the wild Röckstar history behind closed doors and often in their homes if not hotels and busses across the world some 20 times and counting.
It was after the singer in his last band and the drummer came to blows some 100 miles out of St Louis Missouri (literally the center of the continental USA) and ensuing two hours of hitch hiking back to an old buddy’s place on the river in The Lou, that is the birthplace of the LÖVE phenomenon.
”it occurred to me that I was a little bit disappointed in everything that I had ever been a part of and the world had been the most incredible experience of all my dreams and goals and the search for wisdom and enlightenment and love had all been met and surpassed my dreams except for the most important thing in the world of the artist soul and I knew I had to do the magical pe record I have always had in my mind guiding me to the next mediocre experience and band and so on for an entire lifetime for most of the guys and girls that I had made acquaintance with the world over.
No excuses. No outside influences and opinions. No playing my vision by anyone else because it’s the perfect time to get me my perfect album to tape so that if I get to only make one more album- then I could have at least have a full album of my music and my way of playing and feeling and presenting music...A small legacy of perfect songs is still a legacy to be proud of standing behind.”
So the world weary Newcastle kid went back home to the familiar streets and pubs of Newy to work with long time production and bandmate and lifelong friend and mentor - and the only one that was in complete understanding of the imp of making a great album of all time importance and the need to create the perfect timeless album of all the music history and the place that we had to make the music history and the statement that the album and the artist you were waiting for and dreaming of in a perfect world was now ready to make a record amd come out and play!
LÖVEULA became an artist defining and genre creating masterpiece that was the catalyst for a Europe festival tour on the strength of the 5 finished album tracks handed around the 2012 Singapore Music Industry Conference and Trade Show.
a return to Singapore and the Linkin Park openers were the first band since Limp Bizkit to instill a sense of competition to be the best band of the night and the friendship between the two frontmen was to be the catalyst for a song on the WE THE SHEEPLE record,
the sweet guy who had showed LÖVE how to scream safely night after night and grow the vocal tone as the tour was rolling out into the night heading to the next stage in the next city for his music history to be the perfect support band for all 35mins a night...
2012-2015 saw the most epic moments of his life and a great sense of what he is as an artist and the statements and pallette and direction of his music and the business of music side of the biz allowed LÖVE to be the perfect producer and writer for a new wave of dreams of artists and the artistic and musical genius of a music history artist connected and consciously building music and culture on the shoulders of the all time greatest music makers ever- having the same feeling of his personality and place in the music history and story and lack of a competitive approach but as the most important part of the service and upkeep of the magic of music all for a giant, loud, longhaired white dude with a funny accent and the weirdest words that is regularly punctuated with a beautiful natured “cunt” - the ultimate term of endearment and feminist support and after being in the interview game for a decade after a decade and a few minutes before going to air you will still see the lanky Aussie and a sharpie and a few pages of printer paper making signs that say:
”NO SWEARING CUNT™️“
”I’ve basically been trying to make a new revolution for my kitty wielding ladies of the world by my pointing out that the whole thing is a mysoginistic and anti-sisterhood and ant—humanist slur that is as bullshit as men turning into women and then running a race and then flogging the next generation of women who are fast running souls in their little Lycra shorts and their dreams of being in the Olympics in the final can never be ruined by any Cunt born in the absence of a gorgeous woman and her glorious Cunt™️
