Work in progress : Band Discography and History

It seems updating the Music page actually kick-started me into adding more significant information to the site itself (or it could be that I’m procrastinating from revision… but let’s go with the first one :p) so anyway, the major changes are:

  • Discography – New sections for Demos and Compilations/Collaborations have been added in to incorporate information about the other music that Back-on has worked on. This includes some brief info about their first demo (which sold for ¥100 at the time) as well as some of the earlier cd releases, which were only available on the night at the venue of their performance.

    To give a quick run-down of some titles in this new update: Luv Graffiti 2, MONSTERS ROCK VOL.1 & 2, OPTION presents STREAM Z J-LOUD EDITION and STOP AIDS CLUB MOVEMENT. Most of the songs found on these compilations can actually be found in the tracklisting of their later releases.

    However, the complete list isn’t finalised yet because it turned out having over 20 (Firefox) tabs open to view and verify information was surprisingly mentally tiring. So you’ll have to forgive me… ^^; On another note, it seems that Back-on may have created more PVs than previously thought, but it’s something I haven’t yet investigated fully yet so…

  • History – The update made to this page is actually less complete than Discography, but features a brand new sub-section called Time-Line, which I should re-iterate is a work-in-progress.

    Did you know that (apparently) Back-on were called Garden before they were named by Jesse of RIZE?

    I learnt something new today anyway ;) This was (apparently) back in 2000, before the ‘official’ year/month of Back-on‘s ‘formation’ (which is September 2002 for the record and what every Back-on fan should know for their pub-quiz!)

    The other new sub-section is Artists, which will probably be moved to it’s own page in the future, but when writing out the time-line, it was quite useful to also compile a list of websites of artists that were somehow related to Back-on through their collaboration on albums.

As usual I promise new updates (when I can) but I have to admit the Lyrics section will probably be less of a priority at the moment, so hope you all don’t mind too much! If there is some huge objection (or pro-lyrics movement) then feel free to let me know via the comments box. I am easily swayed open to all sorts of opinions! :D

Oh and before the end, you may have noticed that we now have a count-down counter on the topright of the page (under Search) indicating the time till the official release of BLAZE LINE/a day dreaming… Only a day or two now, so ganbatte!
