ROIR’s fifth album with 10Ft. Ganja Plant, “Bush Rock”, is their most inspired and accomplished to date. Includes vocals by Kyle McDonald of Slightly Stoopid & features the core crew of 10 Ft. who are associated with John Brown’s Body.
“Bush Rock” shows the Plant growing to new heights, while keeping their feet firmly rooted in a warm 70’s roots vibe. Standout tracks “Too Much Gun a Bust” & “Got To Be a Soldier” include powerful heart wrenching vocals reminiscent of the greats like Jacob Miller & Joe Higgs. Bush Rock is a well rounded reggae/dub excursion and features both heavy dub tracks and silky sweet songs like the Melodica driven “Machete Strike”. Be on the lookout for 10 Ft. dates near the end of 2009!
“Highly recommended to all John Brown's Body fans and anyone else with an insatiable hunger for classic reggae." – All Music Guide
“Over they years they’ve managed to build a sound all their own while remaining true to the foundational elements that make roots music such a nurturing, cleansing experience… they’ve captured a sound as original and good as the Jamaican classics they emulated in the beginning of their career. Sit back and take a draw: this 10 Ft. Ganja Plant is ‘the kind.’” – The Beat
Who are 10 Ft. Ganja Plant?They are a dub & roots reggae band shrouded in mystery. They hail from the great Northeast and are rumored to share members with another great reggae group, John Brown’s Body. Their shows are rarely announced or promoted. In fact, like a yeti sighting, they seldom occur. Anyone who has seen them live, or owns one of their albums, can attest to the fact that no other band has captured the 70’s spirit quite like this crew, that 10 Ft. may be the best roots group in America.
