Demon Flower

Demon Flower is the eighth studio album by Australian rock band, Hunters & Collectors and was released on 16 May 1994. It was co-produced by the band with Nick Mainsbridge, reaching No. 2 on the ARIA Albums Chart and was certified Gold by the Australian Recording Industry Association. It peaked at No. 9 on the New Zealand Albums Chart. Demon Flower was released by Hunters & Collectors as their eighth studio album on 16 May 1994, co-produced by the band with Nick Mainsbridge; the line-up of the group was John Archer on bass guitar, P. A. backing vocals. Archer told The Canberra Times' Naomi Mapstone that he felt the album had "less kind of studio stuff. I think it's a lot more adventurous though the last one sounded full-on and dense, it was quite a safe record in a lot of ways... We had a lot more fun with the sounds on this one". Australian musicologist, Ian McFarlane noticed that it "featured a stronger emphasis on guitars", it debuted at No. 2 in Australia – their highest charting album – and No. 9 in New Zealand.

Demon Flower's lead single "Easy", was issued a month ahead of the album's release and peaked at No. 38 on both countries singles charts. The three subsequent singles however all failed to chart. Seymour describes the band's frustration in the liner notes of Natural Selection, when discussing the fourth single, "The One and Only", "We’d launch into tracks like this one… an absolute live monster, getting a response would be like trying to raise the dead; the radio recognition factor was crucial. Speaking, there wasn’t any radio after Holy Grail. Go figure." The album was remastered and reissued by Liberation Music on 11 August 2003. Naomi Mapstone of The Canberra Times reviewed Demon Flower in June 1994 and noted that " seem to have, taken a deep breath, cleared their heads and, got back in touch with the vitality, a hallmark of-earlier albums Human Frailty and The Jaws of Life". In December that year her fellow journalist, Nicole Leedham, rated Demon Flower as the Best Album of the year. All lyrics are written by Mark Seymour.

Don't Stop (Nothing More song)

"Don't Stop" is a song by American rock band Nothing More. It was released as a promotional single off of their album The Stories. Two versions of the song exist, the album version, the single and music video version, which contains new guest vocals in the bridge by Papa Roach frontman Jacoby Shaddix. "Don't Stop" was written and recording over the course of 2016 and 2017, while the band alternated between touring and writing and recording their fifth studio album, The Stories We Tell Ourselves. The song was leaked on June 16, 2017, due to a technical glitch on the band's website, was taken down; the song was released a week on June 23, at the same time as the album's first single, "Go to War". A lyric video was released at the same time. A promotional single and full-fledged music video was released on September 29, 2017, two weeks after the release of The Stories We Tell Ourselves; this version contains additional vocals in the bridge by Papa Roach frontman Jacoby Shaddix, alternating vocals with Nothing More frontman Jonny Hawkins.

The music video alternates between footage of the band performing, increasing numbers of people running through a city, away from special agent government men, with the people arriving at the warehouse the band is performing in. Shaddix appears in the video, where he emerges from the crowd to perform his part of the song; the song was described as having an electronic and industrial beat, with an overall hard rock sound due to its "massive bass" and "soaring guitars". The song's sound was described as having elements of nu metal. Hawkins alternates between soaring, melodic vocals, harsh, screamed vocals, throughout the song; the guest vocals provided by Jacoby Shaddix mirror these same traits, with the two creating a sound as if they are "facing off" against one another and screaming. Lyrically, the song is about one pushing forward in one's inner struggles while embracing individuality and inner-strength to do so, it has been described as a "powerful, twisty anthem about not giving up", with Hawkins pleading to the listener to "keep digging deep".

The song, written by Hawkins, was one from the album written during his efforts to re-examine his life, his personal issues, his role in society. "'Don't Stop' has a lyric:'My New Year's Resolution is to cut through the confusions.' That is a literal New Year's Resolution. I had a fun New Year's Eve, but I had a sobering moment in the month of January where I was by myself and a lot of things sunk in that had transpired in the last two years. I think that my own clarity about and documenting it – putting words to that process...will allow other people to find their own story or find clarity. I hope. Or better communication with people, which will allow for more love and understanding and greater things that we can do." Credits from album inlay booklet.

Audubon, Henderson

Audubon called the "South Side", is a neighborhood in Henderson, United States. Its boundaries follow Loeb Street to the west, Meadow Street to the south, Pringle Street to the east, Mill Street to the south, Madison Street to the northwest, S Alvasia Street to the north, Powell Street to the east, S Meadow Street to the south, Clay Street to the east, Atkinson Street to the south, connecting to the corner of Loeb Street; the site of the Audubon Grade School is a prominent feature of the neighborhood. During the 19th century, travel between communities was by foot or on horseback, so they were placed close together. East of the town of Henderson, two villages grew up, with present-day Clay Street being the dividing line between the two county school districts: Weaverton was south and Audubon north of this line. Tradition says that John James Audubon built the first house in this wooded wilderness, on what is now the northeast corner of Loeb and Shelby streets; the first population growth came with the erection of the Cotton Mill in 1883 and its tenement houses in 1885.

A furniture company followed in 1886. Known first as Ohio Valley Furniture Co. it became Marstall Furniture in 1895. By 1900, 600 people worked at the Cotton Mill, with a weekly payroll of $8,000, Marstall employed 150 men, paying them $2,500 weekly; the Cotton Mill built the first school room, near the northwest corner of Letcher and Powell streets. In an interview given in 1950, Ed Hare, a former city judge, reminisced about his old school, commenting that only the younger children attended because many were working in the mill at age nine, he began working at age 11. Another citizen of this period, Mrs. Hattie Williams, remembered seeing children going to work in their bare feet, through snow. Two teachers were required by 1898 and one of them, John Dillahay, said 90 pupils were enrolled. Working conditions had improved by 1900 to such an extent that parents began demanding more education, an addition was built to the school. On in 1905 the Audubon area was annexed as a part of Henderson, East End residents requested a new school.

The board of education spent $2,675 for a church and lot on the southeast corner of Letcher and Clay streets and hired Spalding Trible as the architect of the new Audubon Grade School. Construction began in 1906, the school opened in 1907. At one time, the school boasted the largest enrollment in the public school system; the school closed after its furnace exploded in 1976. The Audubon post office was discontinued in 1895, but the federal government recognized it as a town as late as 1950 by delivering a letter addressed to a street number in "Audubon". Audubon Heights, accepted as part of the Audubon area, has boundaries following Powell Street to the east, S Alvasia Street to the south, Cherry Street to the west, S Green Street to the north connecting to the corner of Powell Street. In the 19th century this neighborhood, being closer to Green Street and its businesses, was considered the front of the Audubon area because of its neighborhood businesses and conveniences of being closer to inner city businesses.

The only school in this neighborhood was Douglas High School, which only blacks from the city and county could attend. In 1965 desegregation was completed in the city school system, Douglas High School was merged into Henderson City High School, leaving the Douglas High School to turn into a public swimming pool and the John F. Kennedy Center. After merging schools and whites both attended Henderson City High School; the last location of the school was placed in the Audubon Heights area and is now known as Henderson South Middle School. Discreetly having the city's only red-light district in the 20th century, this area was considered the hot spot of Audubon. Sallie Smithhart operated Henderson's most notorious prostitution house on the south side at 534 Fagan Street, it is believed she inherited this mantle of Moses Rhodes, who had founded the red-light districts and popularized a prostitution empire here in the 1880–90s. Sallie Smithhart was one of his protégés early in her career and bought the house on Fagan Street from him in 1902.

The house was a brick-built structure amongst wood-frame shotgun houses in the "Pea Ridge" red-light district. She owned 12 beds, a player piano and a Victrola worth $116. There were two pistols also. One was kept in the safe and the other hidden in the bathroom, for the use of shady ladies in case they found themselves dealing with an unruly or hassling client. In those times these houses were referred to as a "bawdy house" or "brothel". Smithhart pleaded guilty a number of times over her operation. Lawsuits were filed by daughter Annie; the Gabe family lived directly across the street from the bawdy house. Amelia Gabe said in her suit that for more than 10 years she had had to put up with the "lewd and lascivious conduct" and the "boisterous, profane and obscene language" of people coming and going from Smithhart's business; the lawsuit caused tension between Smithhart and city authorities. But her business suffered a serious fire in mid-January 1917, with another lawsuit filed a few months after.

Her business was silenced during the 1920s, but the "Pea Ridge" red-light district sometimes echoes in modern-day talk. Sallie Smithhart died of kidney problems at age 58 on October 11, 1930. Night spots were run out of residential houses, around the streets of S Alves, Fagan, S Alvasia and more, offering alcoholic beverages, music and gambling, some locally owned business supported these operations. Business owners found these brothels, as well as night club gambling spots, as another source of earning money without the frustration of tax; this spot, being the home and party scene of small-time drug deale
