Years before Scientist and Jammy battled the space invaders, Tradition dreamt up a sci-fi jazz/dub odyssey in north London. Captain Ganja and the Space Patrol is one of the most singular dub albums that barely saw the light of day. It was a conscious effort to create a new breed of dub centred around the cosmic synths and keys of Paul Thompson and made use of an early Roland sampler, breaking away from the standard drum / bass workouts that ruled the day. A showcase for experimentation where dub became an atmosphere, a feeling, not a formula - littered with baby's cries, tribal chants, radiophonic noodlings and library sounds. Originally issued in a small run by Venture Records in 1980.
