Steve Lieberman (born 1958) (also known as the Gangsta Rabbi) is a Jewish-American punk rock singer, musician, composer and producer residing in Freeport, New York. Considered an outsider musician,[1] "walking the line between insanity and genious [sic]",[2] partially attributed to his lifelong struggle with bipolar disorder,[3] he has commercially released 22 CDs as well as 38 cassette albums in the underground.[4] On all his releases, Lieberman sang and played all instruments himself. In addition to guitar, bass and beats, he added flutes, various brass instruments and a variety of exotics.He has shared the stage with Weezer, Andrew WK, Glassjaw, Ryan Dunn and the Misfits before retiring from performing in December 2011 to battle accelerated phase bone marrow cancer.[5]

In 2009, Lieberman signed a multi-album deal with Jewish indie label JDub Records,[6] taking the place of Matisyahu on their artist roster. As of the spring of 2011, Lieberman, a town comptroller by trade, was "the world’s only orthodox Jewish heavy metal musician with a record deal", according to Newsday.[7]

You need to get off this site and let people with real talent be heard. Awful, Awful, AWFUL... you must be on some pretty good drugs...or maybe some bad ones? What are you using for a drum machine? Sounds like something out of a bad 80's porn movie. Unbelievably, uncomprehensible NOISE.
I'd give this -1 billion stars if I could....Steve...you suck.

this sounds hectic and rambling. there isn't much that keeps me listening to the song other than my waiting for it to get better.

the most interesting part is the texture, lots of sounds fighting each other the whole time. good industrial aesthetic

vocals are stylish but not particularly good. they're also shifted pretty far back in the mix so they're more like an instrument

production is alright
Hey Steve, got involved with some great bands from that "Slash" contest. I've been putting a lot of time on our My Space Page. Give it a look, www.myspace.com/518352884.
