NYC’s ‘dance-rock’ obsession is about to get a lot more ROCKIN' and grow some solid electronic roots... Ming (Ming+FS), Jesse Graham (Freak Power), and indie-rocker Jason Bowers formed the band Generation of Light out of a common disregard for current pop/rock, and a love of ‘The Truth.’

Biography

New York’s ‘dance-rock’ obsession is about to get a lot more ROCKIN' and go to school on true underground electronic roots... Ming of Ming+FS, along with multi-instrumentalist Jesse Graham (Freak Power/Fatboy Slim, Spacek, Violet Indiana), and indie-rocker Jason Bowers formed the band Generation of Light out of a common disregard for current pop/rock, and a common Love of ‘The Truth.’

Generation of Light’s self-released debut ‘The Truth’ hits this planet on October 24, 2006. G-of-L serves their radio-ready, signature sound: laced with hard-rockin’ beats and strong doses of psychadelic-era pop sense and dub/reggae vibes.

G-of-L Guitarist and DJ Ming’s accomplishments speak for themselves. As Ming+FS he released the classic Hell’s Kitchen album (Om Records) which helped found the North American electronic scene and put drum n’ bass music on the map. Ming was featured in URB's "Next 100" and the pages of Spin, XLR8R, and Mixer and was invited to share the stage with artists including Moby, Sting, Paul Oakenfold, Kruder & Dorfmeister, and The Roots.

Jesse Graham also brings a wealth of artistic accomlishments to G-of-L. As a member of Freak Power, Graham had a UK hit single with 'Turn On, Tune In, Cop Out;' performed on Top of the Pops, MTV Europe, The CBS Morning Show, CDUK, and Hotel Babylon; and contributed music to 2004's critically-acclaimed film 'Code 46.'

Lead singer Jason Bowers’ musical aspirations came true from the flourishing Midwest-alternative scene that birthed The Get Up Kids; Bright Eyes; and Kansas City’s The Golden Republic (Astralwerks), which he was originally a member of. Bowers’ was a finalist in the 2002 and 2003 John Lennon/BMI Songwriting Contests and released an independent album that snatched up CMJ charts nation-wide and several TV placements on MTV, MTV2, CBS, and E!. Bowers toured the Midwest, opening for national acts including Art Alexakis of Everclear, Mest, and The Riddilin Kids.

Now, at home in the city, and as lead singer of G-of-L, Bowers has performed on Joey Reynolds’ show (W0R radio); at a BMI Showcase at The Living Room; and at The Knitting Factory, Sin-e', and Arlene's Grocery, among other venues. Bowers’ Generation of Light is the first in THIS generation.

Lyrics

The Fallout (hook)

Written By: JB, Ming+FS

...
this is THE FALLOUT, this is the be.gining of the end...............

I don't need this
we can beat this
I think we should quit before we start

& I won't do this
we can get through this
I won't let us TEAR OURSELVES APART

tear ourselves apart
tear ourselves!...

Truth (hook)

Written By: JB, Ming+FS

...
All I want is Love
I'm all Open, fill me up
You're the only thing I Trust
tell the whole world to get lost
'cause they're crushing down on you
we got monsters on the loose
I'm say'n: give me SOMETHING NEW
HOW ABOUT THE TRUTH

how about the TRUTH...
