Correction, there are 2000 more people voting "Yes" in the poll... a significant number for this area!

For those unfamilar with the music scene in Columbus-Phenix City then and now, the scene is also thriving with talent of every variety:

http://www.youtube.com/user/RusticViewer07/vi...

These videos can be viewed by Phenix City residents on East Alabama Cable-TV channel 7 throughout the days and nights.

Follow the link above for a good representative overview of the local Columbus-Phenix City music scene with videos from local talent both young and old.

Takes all kinds here on Topix.com ... all kinds of obsessed troll, that is:

http://www.nytimes.com/2011/09/20/us/small-to...

"...a social media Web site called Topix, where they write and read startlingly negative posts, all cloaked in anonymity, about one another. And in Dee’s Place, people are not happy... called Topix a 'cesspool of character assassination.'[...] In rural America, older, poorer remote population lagged the rest of the country in embracing the Internet, the growing use of social media is raising familiar concerns about bullying and privacy... hubs of unsubstantiated gossip, stirring widespread resentment in communities where ties run deep, memories run long and anonymity is a novel concept.'Something about rural culture seems to make people want to have conversations in public,' Topix, a site lightly trafficked in cities, enjoys a dedicated and growing following across the Ozarks, Appalachia and much of the rural South, establishing an unexpected niche in communities of a few hundred or few thousand people..."

And, of course, there's a difference between free speech and libel.

The posts made here and elsewhere on Topix.com by the trolls you asked about generally tend to fall into the latter category.

Will is a good guy. Besides a few morons, most of the people just have an opinion on some of the music he posts and not him as a person.

Anyways..

Here's a quick video of Radiolucent at The Loft in February. I think some might find this more up their ally...

http://www.youtube.com/watch...

They'll be back at The Loft on Fri, April 12 along with Have Gun, Will Travel...

HAVE GUN, WILL TRAVEL ( http://www.hgwtmusic.com )
Florida's Have Gun, Will Travel (HGWT) has been busy since the 2008 release of their debut full-length album, Casting Shadows Tall As Giants. The alternative folk-rock band garnered praise from national media outlets such as National Public Radio. "Their music has a great energy to it with some infectious, sing-along choruses and refrains," commented NPR host Robin Hilton.

Thanks, Josh.

And looks like you have some powerful acts coming to The Loft, hopefully I'll get back down to Broadway sometime in the near future and check some of this action out...

Yeah, I've often wondered why there's no "Edit" function on Topix Forums, myself.

Another example of the top flight musical backing and world class talent of The Conley Brothers Band. If you don't agree, then you're obviously missing something, somewhere...

Shadowville Speedway

In a taxi watching a sporting house
Beside a Linwood vacant lot
Silverdollar moon portspotting
Constellation like a sailor's knot.
The sky was black, ink and glitter in the night
Train whine saxophone out beyond the light.
I'm in love with a ghost blue turns to grey
Put a pyramid on my head to take my pain away.
Shadowville, Shadowville Speedway
Riding slow down a one way street.

Brown Recluse magic drifting around the shed
Someone has it in for me I must not lose my head
Moving with the speedo life several with me left behind
Burned too many bridges defragmented my time.
Somewhere in time I've seen all this before
In a magazine or a dream of a distant war.
Shadowville, Shadowville Speedway
Riding slow down a one way street.

Manifested destiny a manifesto and a part
All the actors still agree that ever had a heart.
Hazel knew the karma, she kept it in a bottle
Black tooth mojo marked index cards
Bundles over the side of Dillingham Bridge
Splashing as ripples reflect from the stars.
Shadowville, Shadowville Speedway
Riding slow down a one way street
Shadowville, Shadowville Speedway
Don't look back, don't admit defeat.

Here's a good write-up on "Will Dockery music" by the writer Larry Caddel recently nailed the connection quite well in his Columbus Community News write-up:

http://alt.guitar.narkive.com/loyyp0OI/new-de...

It was a hot and balmy Saturday night. The intermittent rain only
pushed the humidity level off the charts. I had heard good things
about Backyard Blues. Something was happening at a grassroots level.

After all, I received my invite courtesy of Will Dockery, Columbus'
poet laureate and Ralph Frank, our own drummer/sign painter/folk artist
extraordinaire.

Thomas Gottshall purchased the old "coin op" laundry and
accompanying garage-style building on Sixth Street and First Avenue.

He has been renovating and restoring the old building in hopes of
turning it into a music and arts complex. Floor plans have been
created featuring performance space, meeting rooms and a recording
studio. The building is made of brick and features a wooden-arched
roof.

The large main room has a small stage on one end and has surprisingly
good acoustics, thanks to the arched ceiling.

[...]

After several acoustic performers, the Shadowville All-stars took the
stage. This band of rock n' roll renegades are fronted by Will
Dockery who has long needed a launch pad for his eclectic,
imagery-laden, neo-beatific poems. Chain-smoking, spontaneously
gesturing towards make-believe objects and addressing imaginary
characters, Dockery sang with a gravel-throated limp to a rolling,
bluesy romp in the swamp. Sounding like a cross between Tom Waits, Lou
Reed and the soundtrack to Pulp Fiction, Dockery and crew chugged
through their myriad of originals about pool halls, bridges, tragedies,
lost love and relationships.
The music of the All-stars was gritty and down-to-earth: a solid
backbeat encircled by the meandering bass lines of Sam Singer and two
blues-infused electric guitars (one tremolo-heavy surf-induced). The
band was joined on stage by Henry Parker for a long, bombastic version
of Sweet Jane by the Velvet Underground.
I was glad to hear this crew of upstarts carving out musical sketches
of Smith-station, the Dillingham Street Bridge and other
Columbus-inspired landmarks. I hope to see a lot more of the
Shadowville All-stars. They kicked out the jams.-Larry Caddell

Indeed, the talent here on the local scene is alive, thriving and of world class legitimacy.

Here's a song I wrote with Rusty Wood as an example:

Shark Pact Manifesto / Will Dockery & Shadowville All-Stars

http://youtu.be/Ft3X3kC6nr4

Shark Pact Manifesto
The law of the undertow
it ends at the waterline.
In the Summerville night
not all of us can win.
There we are
where we never really were
Here we are
sidestepping the future.

Smile at me
while you stab me in the back.
Smile at me
make the moment last.

Standing near Ferry Landing
wind stinging my eyes.
Centuries reflect on the river
as you smile from the sky.
Shark Pact manifesto
no one makes a sound.
Silent waiting for the Tie Snake
to drag us Underground.

I saw the river darken
so green it turns to black
With the sun fading away
edge of Alabama on my back.

Here we are
at the only place you'd allow
There you go
forcing my hand on
this burning bridge now.

There we are
where we never really were
Here we go
sidestepping the future.

Smile at me
from out of the past
Smile at me
make it last.

-Will Dockery
