10 FT Ganja Plant

10 FT Ganja Plant

10 FT Ganja Planet is a roots/dub Reggae group primarily based in upstate New York that is a spinoff collective of the popular group John Brown's Body, and is spearheaded by former JBB dub engineer Craig Welsch. The group lineup does not consist of the entire JBB lineup, often employing the assistance of many special guest artists.
One of the main keys to 10 Ft. Ganja Plant's legacy is their consistent shroud of mystery, considering that, for the most part, fans are baffled as to whom the unfamiliar guest artists are in particular as there are often no personnel credits featured on any of their albums. Their key vocalists, however, were Ras Jay Champany and former JBB lead singer Kevin Kinsella[citation needed]. While their music today has a wide range of styles, most of their music often has a more traditional vintage '70s Jamaican sound to it.
10 Ft. Ganja Plant has released six albums to date: Presents, Hillside Airstrip, Midnight Landing, Bass Chalice, Bush Rock, and 10 Deadly Shots, Vol. 1. In 2007, Presents was remastered and reissued by ROIR with two bonus tracks previously released strictly on 45 RPM single (one from 2000 during the same sessions as Presents and one from 2003) on their homebase label, I-Town Records, founded by Kevin Kinsella.

Destroy Babylon

"The core trio of Rob Carmichael and twin brothers Marc and John Beaudette, have certainly developed a grasp for Jamaican music's minutiae, but have also acquitted themselves as near-professional listeners of the entire popular spectrum... Few other bands in town can wield their individual genre with this ease and fewer have as much to lose. Reggae is a gamble, because bad reggae is the worst (as demonstrated by many commercials for Caribbean tourism). But DB's risk is the listener's reward. The group's latest full-length Long Live the Vortex is a perfect concoction, two parts authenticity and one part innovation. They may lack the Trench Town pedigree (their formative years were spent in Hudson, NH), but they have become one of Boston's best." -Noise

"Destroy Babylon play such a fluid dubby-reggae style, they sound more like original early ’70s Jamaicans... absolutely skilled, soulfully political, and riding all the right horns and harmonies." -The Big Takeover
