Gothic Reggae

Well, we'll leave that up to you, because it's not Marley and it's not quite Bauhaus, maybe more like Billie Holiday and Jim Morrison on a wild rendezvous in Jamaica.

"excellent stuff" - Jef Lee

"I think you have a great album on your hands" - Hans DeKline, Sound Bites Dog Mastering

"Chris Jackson is the star element via his vocals on every track" "without artists like Impulsive Lust, the music scene would be boring!" - Bob Suehs, Rock N Roll Experience, Maryland

"Gothic reggae? Now that's original!" - Sydney Alston, Disc Makers

"impulsive lust appears with an album paradoxically brilliant. Reggae infusions of strange structures, mixed through a pop/rock of another age completely brought back. Listen, but attention, you were warned!" - Salvatore Baldacchino, Backstage Radio News, Belgium

"Brutally honest and playfully uncomplicated. There is no genre confinement when it comes to the sound, but the melodies and lyrics, rich in vibrant untainted naivety, seem to possess the rhythmic blissfulness of reggae." - Morticia Devine, Underground Press, South Africa

"Honest. Straight from the heart." - Peter-Jan, Darker Than the Bat

"This cd is exactly what the title suggests, a twisted fusion of goth and reggae, at least on the best tracks (like "Amphetamine" and "Darkness"), where dark, droning keyboards play out over fat reggae beats from a drum machine while solo guy Christopher Jackson sings. The overall feel of the entire album has more to do with reggae than goth -- it's really an eccentric reggae album with goth stylings on top -- and while it's kind of bizarre to hear a white dude from L.A. doing reggae, he's actually got a pretty good grip on the concept.

In true reggae tradition, he keeps everything simple, including the keyboards, but those simple rhythms and keyboard bleats are awfully catchy. Reggae is all about the groove, and there's plenty of groove happening here, especially on the keyboard-heavy tracks; he's really good at piling on the keyboard drone, which makes for a really interesting sound. Twelve tracks, plenty of island rhythms and whompin' beats, and plenty of good-natured attitude.

Reggae fans (hell, maybe even goth fans) looking for new kicks should look into this." - RKF, Dead Angel - Austin, TX


impulsive lust is that feeling in your blood when you're so alive, going for what you want.

And the music is just that, riding in the rhythms of gothic darkness to the positivity of reggae. From Los Angeles, CA, Christopher Jackson spontaneously flows in the soundscape of lyrics and music that may seem enchanting, yet are as natural as the contrast of dark and light.

The new release, Gothic Reggae, comes from the experience of a 5+ album catalog and the freshness of letting go, unbound by any genre. As a solo artist, the message comes through without hesitation to provide an almost pure expression. But let the music speak for itself and look for impulsive lust live.

Al Briones played keys on "Positive Positive" & "One Night". Amos Przekaza and Russell Walters performed drum and bass on "Holiday" & "Good Times".

Cristina Basurto and Rosa Bautista added extra special vocal spice on "Good Times".

Mr. Demonia

A much needed new sound in the Gothic scene. Congrats and keep coming with more. Sounds a little like The Cure in reggae mix. Really good! (no Im not into Reggae but this album was worth buying!)

Jack Bishop

Outrageous expression
CJ's Gothic Reggae is an outrageous example of a
new "world hybrid" that takes the listener on a journey
they will not soon forget.
