Sites that link to Back-on Online – Thanks!

There are several sites on the WWW that link to Back-on Online, and thus far, we haven’t had the opportunity to link back to most of them yet! I would like to show our appreciation by posting a bit about each site. So, in no particular order:

Wikipedia - Back-on Wikipedia – Back-on
A fair amount of traffic is generated from the Wiki entry for Back-on, so will have to thank whoever linked us there in the first place, as well as Justwisted for creating and maintaining the Wiki entry!
Japtard.com - Who wants more Groovy Trick! Japtard.com
Our first contact with Japtard was through the Air Gear OST II – Who wants more Groovy Trick! and since then, Frox has kindly added a link to Back-on Online on his blogroll. Thank you! ^^

This is a Thai site that seems to be dedicated to Jpop and Jrock, and when the owner did a feature on Back-on, they very kindly added a link to BOO.
Baidu Back-on Community Baidu Back-on Community
The owner of the board (kenji03) has also kindly linked BOO several times. For fans – particularly those who understand Chinese, this is probably the best place to visit for Back-on related music media!
Db0 - CSS Wrangling A Division by Zero
Db0‘s personal site is actually not related to Back-on, but he still kindly wrote about BOO, as both sites are based on the same WordPress template (Hemingway-Ex) and now both use the same dropdown menu!

About this entry

Air Gear OST II – Who Wants More Groovy Trick!!?? – Chain (Short) Instrumental Remix Extravaganza

The Air Gear opening theme – Chain is one of the songs that introduced *lots* of people (including yours truly) to the wonderful band that we all know as Back-on, and since reading the interview by JaME, I’ve become intrigued by the idea of remixes, since Back-on have said that they would like to:

rearrange Chain in DUB

where DUB is apparently a form of Jamaican music with reggae origins. To bring this into context, Back-on‘s name was given by Jesse of the Japanese metal, reggae and rap band RIZE. :)

So how does this all relate to the Air Gear OST II?

I have to confess that I haven’t actually seen the anime Air Gear beyond Episode 1, because I became a bit too obsessed intrigued by Back-on to continue watching it, but listening to the second OST (original sound track) is really helping to change my mind!

The first OST (original sound track) “What a Groovy Trick!” was hailed as a great album, but for fans of the show, it appears to have lacked the instrumental versions of Chain used throughout the anime.

The producers haven’t made the same mistake twice, and the second OST “Who wants More Groovy Trick!!??” features 8 (short but) different instrumental remix versions of Chain by Skankfunk! And in all honesty, I love them all!
