  • Steve Lieberman’s Boundary Pushing Symphonic Thrash!

    The first composers to insist on the aesthetic necessity of noise in music were the Italian Futurists at the start of the 20th century, who made and performed with new noise-producing instruments. Forward to the 21st century, and there are only a handful of artists using extremes of massive...
  • Grex ft. Steve Lieberman: “My Day” – a uniquely raw musical stew

    Mid-60s British psychedelic rock group the Yardbirds never established a signature style, in part because of crazy management changes; in part because they changed lead guitarists over the years – though they had some of the most amazing ones, including Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page; and in...
  • Steve Lieberman: “The Gangsta Rabbi’s (Punk/Thrash) Thick As A Brick/A Passion Play”

    After the transitional and daring “Aqualung” album turned Jethro Tull into hard rock heroes and stadium giants, the group made one of the gutsiest moves they could; their next album, 1972’s “Thick As A Brick” consisted of a single, LP-length song, full of winding structures and movements, at just...

  • Bop Bop Bigger Bab-‘eL (ft. Steve Lieberman) 1991-1998 Underground Sessions

    Steve Lieberman (also known as the Gangsta Rabbi) has been on a creative run for a few years now. His urgent surge forward, in recording, producing and releasing material has been relentless, almost obsessively so, some may think. The man has an incessant work ethic, as if there is no tomorrow. However,...
  • Steve Lieberman: “The Gangsta Rabbi’s Tommy” was not dreamed up by a conceited artist!

    How much courage do you need to cover The Who’s defining, breakthrough concept album – a full-blown rock opera about a deaf, dumb and blind boy that launched the band to international superstardom, written almost entirely by band leader and guitarist, Pete Townshend? That question could actually be answered...
