school food punishment – amp-reflection DVD (Preview)


So my copy of amp-reflection arrived in the mail last week, and I noticed that the bonus DVD featured some commentary from the band. I still haven’t deciphered all of it (they talk pretty fast), but I thought I’d share some interesting information that stuck with me.

-Yamasaki (the bassist) describes the motions for the bass intro in “goodblue” as crablike.
-The basic idea of “butterfly swimmer” has been in existence for several years.
-“Densha, Suberiochiru, Headphone” had those strange sound effects mostly because of Hasuo’s (the keyboardist’s) ideas, which involved iPhones.
-“04:59” is about being drunk and not wanting the morning to come, about starting to sober up but not wanting to.
-Yamasaki did the backing vocals for “Kakenukeru.” He never expected that they would have a part with his voice alone (the “high speed” before the last chorus).
-Yamasaki was initially amazed at the difficulty of his part in “line”.
-Yumi Uchimura (the vocalist/lyricist) cried while writing the lyrics for “Percentage”.
