flower single : a glimpse into the extra music clips on the disc

As you may already know, the flower single came with a promise of bonus content: music clips of flower, BLAZE LINE and a day dreaming…. At the time, I was speculating that they may be just short clips, but as it turns out, they are the full music videos or pvs!

However, what Back-on have done is to package everything into an .exe file so if you viewed the CD content itself, all you see is:

Content of flower single disc

So what does the interface look like? :) The background is literally Back-on‘s flower single cover, then on the top left of the screen is a video player with orange control buttons along the bottom. To the right is first Back-on‘s new logo (in orange) followed by the text flower, BLAZE LINE and a day dreaming… directly below it. These are clickable, so you would click on them to choose the video.

Having said all that, it’s probably better to show a screenshot, since a picture *is* worth a thousand words, so have a look at the thumbnail of the screenshot below!

Watch the flower PV in full on Youtube!

Just when (I) we thought that the Myspace preview of the flower PV was the best thing we were going to get for the week, it turns out that blueblueblue has yet again surprised us by uploading the full version of the PV on Youtube! Thank you! This latest news comes courtesy of Sound EX via this forum thread, and Back-on have yet again gone in a new direction from their previous work, where the band enter a (rather nice) room with modern decor that has extremely rich colours – particularly dominated by the red sofa – and perform flower.

It isn’t all singing and playing – Back-on eat snacks prepared (by a very lucky lady) and have a little fun as a group too, so it’s quite an interesting video to watch, especially if you’re enjoying the music as well!

You can watch the video by clicking on this direct link, or scrolling further to watch it directly on BOO! Why not let us know what you think too in the comments section? :)

Update 28/12/2007: Thanks to TELO for letting us know about the video going offline! We have now updated the link with the same PV that has kindly been uploaded by dualimaen.

Preview of flower PV on Back-on’s Myspace!

The video preview of the the flower PV was actually released last week (around the same time as the music clip I believe) but alas, I managed to completely blank it, so gomenasai for not including it in the previous news post! >_< Without further ado, you can click to visit Back-on’s Myspace for the preview clip, or watch it below on BOO! Please let us know what you think! :)

p/s: I ask this, because not only do we get to see Teeda‘s new hairstyle, this is also perhaps the first time that there has been an acting 3rd party (girl, in this case) in one of Back-on‘s music videos! Who is the lucky person, and how come it isn’t *cough* umm, seriously though, what does it take to be the lucky girl!?

Answers on a back of a postcard (or comment section) please! :)

One more day till Anime Matsuri…

There’s only ONE MORE DAY till the start of Anime Matsuri! Despite The convention being only in its first year (a fact I only just found out, thanks to Sound EX) I think its safe to say that the organisers have been quite extraordinary, seeing as they were able to invite BACK-ON (only our favourite band :)) and a host of other guests and arrange so many events!

You can find out more about Back-on‘s schedule at Anime Matsuri from this post, and a variety of sources have confirmed that they will be definitely attending Dance till Dawn so hope lots of people will be there to support them as well. Remember this is Back-on‘s first international performance, so extra enthusiasm is a must! If that’s not quite enough incentive, I can certainly try and telepathically send my waves of enthusiasm across the pond from England!

For those who are able to attend the event – congratulations! Back-on fans (including myself) unable to attend would really appreciate it if those who are there could share their stories with us! Multimedia, such as pictures and videos would definitely be an added bonus :) Please feel free to post on the forums, or even contact me directly, as we would all love to hear more!
In other related news, [MC] mentioned on the Anime Matsuri Forums that:

a little birdie told me that they’re filming their next music video here in H*TOWN!!!!

This is exciting news and could explain the 10 day mini-gap between Back-on‘s stay in America and their next Tokyo gig (aside from the time-off; adjusting to time difference; and editing of the trip-to-America video to be presented by Icchan at the gig) If you’re living in Houston, perhaps this is a good opportunity to do a bit of Back-on spotting!

And finally, regarding site updates… we will (finally) be updating the Music page sometime within the week to feature Baby Rock, as well as typing up lyrics such as Gaku-Ten! We are also working on the translation of Back-on’s KERA interview, so watch this space. ^^

Teeda's new hairdo!

p/s: I leave you with another picture of Teeda and his new hair style, taken with his cousin at the latter’s birthday, straight from his very own blog.
