Steve Lieberman The Gangsta Rabbi New LP

Steve Lieberman the Gangsta Rabbi

Steve Lieberman the Gangsta Rabbi is an indie veteran who has been making his unique brand of avant-garde experimental music for over 50 years. The Long Island, New York native got his start in the 70’s, playing bass in high school punk and metal bands. Soon he began writing and recording his own material and distributing through the old-school DIY zine scene.

Throughout the 80’s and early 90’s, independent musicians connected via an unofficial national community of privately published magazines, commonly referred to as zines. They were the blogs of the pre-internet era. Steve Lieberman (performing as Bop Bop Bigger Bab’el) sold and traded his music via zine cassette exchanges.

By the mid 1990’s Steve Lieberman had adopted the title The Gangsta Rabbi. A Hebrew Nazarite, the musician is the founder of The Bad’lanim, a minority sect of Judaism. Over the course of his career Steve has recorded and released over five dozen albums. For awhile even held the Guinness World Record for Longest Officially Released Song, for “The Noise Militia (#38/76)” which clocked in at 35 hours, 41 minutes and 9 seconds.

“A Duchess In A Time of Peace (Entr’acte #138)” is the current single from Steve Lieberman the Gangsta Rabbi’s latest album, The 4th King of Jewish Punk: With a Pillar of Sound, I Praise The L-rd (#41/79) [Opus 138], released worldwide via all major streaming services on February 13, 2023.  With an ensemble of percussion, keys, flute and his signature distorted bass, Lieberman delivers a wild mix of noise punk, acid rock and avant-garde jazz.
