The band progressed from a funk band to a rock band over the years, as bassist Alex Caird and multi-instrumentalist Ben Henderson joined the group, and Steve's sister Jasmine was added as vocalist. They produced two major albums, Twilight and Get There Their track "Duvet" was the opening theme song to the anime television series Serial Experiments Lain. The band was originally signed by Polystar in Japan and produced their first album 'Race of a Thousand Camels' However, the band decided to change labels and signed with Pioneer LDC now called Geneon to produce their album Twilight Get There  was released on 1 February It also had more acoustic elements than the first album. Alex Caird, who had played with Ed in another band Draggin' Bones, was soon recruited on bass guitar. Steve's younger sister, Jasmine Rodgers, was invited to sing the chorus part of one of their first songs called "Fran", and she soon became the lead singer of the group. Ben Henderson, who had played with Alex in the band Doctor Sky, was recruited shortly afterwards to play saxophone.
The lyrics is about a breakup. Director Chiaki J Konaka chose Duvet as the opening theme after seeing a translation of the lyrics and thinking that they seemed very Japanese. And you don't seem to understand A shame you seemed an honest man And all the fears you hold so dear Will turn to whisper in your ear And you know what they say might hurt you And you know that it means so much And you don't even feel a thing. And you don't seem the lying kind A shame then I can read your mind And all the things that I read there Candle lit smile that we both share and you know I don't mean to hurt you But you know that it means so much And you don't even feel a thing.

Lyrics Edit And you don't seem to understand A shame you seemed an honest man And all the fears you hold so dear Will turn to whisper in your ear And you know what they say might hurt you And you know that it means so much And you don't even feel a thing I am falling, I am fading I have lost it all And you don't seem the lying kind A shame then I can read your mind And all the things that I read there Candle lit smile that we both share and you know I don't mean to hurt you But you know that it means so much And you don't even feel a thing I am falling, I am fading, I am drowning Help me to breathe I am hurting, I have lost it all I am losing Help me to breathe I am falling, I am fading, I am drowning Help me to breathe I am hurting, I have lost it all I am losing Help me to breathe I am falling, I am fading, I am drowning Help me to breathe I am hurting, I have lost it all I am losing Help me to breathe Trivia Edit The song also inspired the name for Bolivian rock band Duvet.

I had a business, 3 engineering degrees, numerous patents, and was working countless hours a week to try and keep a roof over our heads, make sure she was fed, the house was clean, bills were paid, etc. He needs a house that he can call home and a family that loves him. And for mormons, the goal is always a temple marriage and a marriage for the eternities. Maybe watch "Going Clear" with her. This is how I felt when I married my exmo husband. Why shouldn't both people be responsible for making it work. In areas with lots of single Mormons of dating and marriageable age, the Church has established singles wards. He may never want anything to do with Mormons or the church again. There is no question that God loves all of His children, and that obviously includes non-members. As for deciding to marry someone who is not mormon, here is how I made the decision.
Serial Experiments Lain, with its vision of a world where the lines between the digital realm and real world blurred and blended into one, was a groundbreaking series.
The storyline, character designs, and themes remain ripe for revisiting, and so, too, is its music. The song made its way to Lain through a winding path. The themes of the song and series also seem to cross over. For Rodgers, writing the song was cathartic. The song was an immediate success. Remixes followed, as did a wonderful response from the public. That was quite bizarre.
When I went out there, it was really lovely to know that people already knew what we were doing—more than in the UK. Rodgers admired Serial Experiments Lain and anime in general.
Most people can put their own inference onto it. Everyone has their own valuable voice. One reason for the break is that Rodgers went into higher education, studying zoology. Today, from writing a piece for a classical Indian musician doing tabla playing to coming up with ideas with a cellist friend for Edinburgh Fringe, Rodgers keeps herself busy. She released an album in and will be touring later this year as well.
Just a big, big, big thank you. You can keep up with Jasmine and her music through her website , Facebook , and Instagram. I just listened to it on Youtube yay, Youtube and it really sounds amazing. What a fantastic song.
Oh, I love it! Thank you so much for this very very good Interview, Serial Experiments Lain remains my favourite anime ever and I think everyone must watch it.
Reading the Jasmine interview is very interesting. Thanks for sharing! I hope the same, that visitors to this site will explore other music from Boa and Jasmine! When I watched the first episode of SEL, I seriously did a double-take and checked to see if I had somehow accidentally ended up watching a dubbed version of the show.
