The enigmatic Boston based dub outfit 10 Ft. Ganja Plant will play the third ever live show of their 12 year career on 4/20 at the Middle East Downstairs in Cambridge, MA. Joining the band will be Chadwick Stokes (of Dispatch and State Radio) performing a special acoustic performance and Boston punk up and comers Destroy Babylon.
Stay on the lookout for a new album from the plant titled “10 Deadly Shots Vol. II.” The New album is set to feat. keyboard king Roger Rivas of The Aggrolites! It’s scheduled to be available on April 24th via ROIR Records
For nearly ten years now, the mysterious roots reggae collective 10 Ft. Ganja Plant has operated under a dense shroud of anonymity. Although it’s no secret that the group primarily consists of former/current members of John Brown’s Body, their albums rarely feature personnel credits, and the band has played only a handful of live shows to date.
Much like their publicity, the band’s music as well is generally shrouded in dense layers of fog and echo. Unlike John Brown’s Body who are taking roots to the future, 10 Ft. Ganja Plant seems more than happy to dig the roots deep into the past, to the days when Studio One bustled and skank’d with fresh roots riddims, and Tubby and Perry’s mad scientist experiments expanded the role of the recording studio and the studio engineer to match the emerging modern world of infinite possibility.
