STEVE LIEBERMAN ON COVER OF JAMSPHERE MAGAZINE becoming King of Jewish Punk while in month-long coma!!!
Jamsphere Magazine 2/2017
20–13 Ab’ib 3468-(4/9/2017)-‘1st Diaspora-Egypt’ my Passover offering from ‘2nd King of Jewish Punk’
today, by Sundown. I will release my 4th single from my forthcoming 31st cd and 69th recording “2nd King of Jewish Punk” #31/#69. As all recordings on the King of Jewish punk series, these were songs from my back-catalog that I am rewriting and rerecording. “1st Diaspora-Egypt” was originally from my 16th cd “Diaspora: A folk-punk History of the Hebrew Nation” released 3/31/2009. it covers the Passover story in 6:05 from the slavery of Joseph to the desert wanderings. love ya’s all here are the words:
a brother sold as a slave prime minister rises from the dungeon cave a Prophecy-of ugly cows and grain from a Prophecy: one million saved.
THE INIQUITY OF THE AMO’RITES NOT YET FULFILLED THAT WILL TAKE ANOTHER 400 YEARS DIASPORA ALONG THE RIVER NILE FROM SLAVERY: A NEW NATION IS REDUCED TO TEARS a clan numbering 67 becomes a Nation 10, 000-fold implied threat to Pharoah’s horde “Build me pyramids!” no straw will be doled.
The Miracle of Redemption series of plagues numbering ten the Sea of Reeds is divided Pharoah’s hordes lie beaten
Freed from the Egyptian Diaspora we’ll be slaves many times for our sins 40 years to die in the Desert/ a Chosen Nation He will always forgive.
#19-1 Ab'ib 3468--3/27/2017--HAPPY NEW YEAR 3468!!
‘And the L-RD spoke to Moses and Aaron in the Land of Egypt saying, This month shall mark the beginning of the months for you. It shall be the first of the year’–Exodus 12.1 what does this say? it says at Sundown tonight it will be the new year according to G-d’s Commandment, in fact the first Commandment He gave the Israelites as a nation. it was 2 weeks before the first Passover.i’m no sure why I get looked at as if I had 2 heads when stating this.it is a Commandment of the G-d of Israel, one of the 613 yet is it true this is only followed among the Hebrews by the Bad’lans yet the other 10 million or so Hebrews choose to celebrate on the Feast of Trumpets on the 1st day of the 7th month which I don’t think is right.
I know as I was told about 4 different Hebrew new years I think civil, religious, tree and another. I choose to celebrate the one our G-d commanded us to.
Happy New Year 3468. love ya’s all
20 Acher'on-12 3467-3/19/2017-The True , Sad Story of "Jewish Riot"
it was 27 June 2003, almost 14 years ago. in those days I had released my 1st album "Bad'lania Rising" and was finalizing my 2nd Jewish Lightning. I had a real lot of very experimental cuts, some of which made it to my 3rd 'Desert Fever Brigade' among those that didn't make the album was a loud instrumental called 'Violate The Bass!' I was on a German-based on-line music distributor called besonic.com. I had some songs in the top 100 sub-genre charts but short-lived. I then released "Violate the Bass!" under the experimental noise sub-genre. the next day, it bolted from nowhere to #4 on the global All Genre chart. many there didn't like the idea of me being there, and the song really wasn't that good.i began to receive threatening emails from artists and listeners from Germany. they posted blogs against me in German accusing me of fixing the charts. they overestimated me. I didn't know how to do that, and if I did know, I would never do such a thing. I couldn't understand the German in the blogs, but I saw the word 'juden' in there and got very frightened. I had to think what to do. i couldn't play the game they were playing, so this is what I did.it became a war where members of the Jewish community on the site were rallying to me, protecting my reputation. I wrote a song called "Jewish Riot" as my response of the war I thought was long over==it wentlike this, very loudly.
FIRST THERE WAS ME, THEN ANOTHER THREE THEN A MINYON OF TEN LITTLE HAIRY MEN.
JEWISH RIOT-OY!OY!OY! JEWISH RIOT-YEAH!
WE DIDN'T HAVE A SHOFAR, SO WE SOUND THE SHAHNAI AND WE ALL SHOUTED "AM YISR'AEL CHAI!"
JEWISH RIOT-OY!OY!OY! JEWISH RIOT-YEAH!
WE WERE STANDING TEN MINYONS STRONG THE RACISTS RETREAT AS THEY KNEW THEY WERE WRONG.
JEWISH RIOT-OY!OY!OY! JEWISH RIOT-YEAH!
WE SAT BACK AND WATCH THEIR RETREAT BLESSED BE G-D FOR THEIR PUBLIC DEFEAT.
JEWISH RIOT-OY!OY!OY! JEWISH RIOT-YEAH!
it went to #12 in the punk sub-genre, 107 overall.
I read their blogs in German with a free translator.
it basically said-'a call to war. this one wants a Jewish Riot. lets put on the black boots again and smash Judah.
the site admin deleted all of them from the site because of this.
18--6 Acher'on-12 3467-3/5/2017-The True , Sad Story of "Jewish Riot"
he King of Jewish Punk (#30/68) and my First Temporary Death! 11 May 2016-my hemoglobin dropped to under 3 and i died for a short while. during this time, i was transported by a Divine Being and i was on the stage in what i will say was the Lowest Of Heavens. i was up there with the angels, playing live every instrument i know-all at the same time! it was powerful, fast and good. i'm brought back by the Divine Being who brought me there. i crawl my way to my board to try to produce this, but i was not permitted to do it on earth so i drew a blank and woke up in the hospital. i returned a week later and finished recording The Gangsta Rabbi's Aqualung . after that was "down with a bang #29' didn't have it either. after my 2nd Temporary Death on 8/15/16 i recover enough by October to start my new cd. me and Rebekah go the guitar center and i get a 29.00 pedal by boss caleed FUZZ5. i removed the D-string and played SUS-4 2 note chords and my sound got more majestic----to continue

The DIAGNOSIS of my sickness-i have POLYCYTHEMIA VERA a rare BONE MARROW disorder affecting one in 1,000,000 people, most being 'ambitious middle-age men' There is no cure for this, but the symptoms are treated by weekly blood-lettings which will hopefully retrain the BONE MARRoW to function properly. Ambitious? that's how the heck i survived in this industry so full of haters. This beats the hell out of leukemia though!
Much love going out to JDub Records, my label who visited me last week to do a documentary on my interesting and crazy life and music. Please visit jdubrecords.org to see the first video from it-me covering the Buzzcock's 1978 masterpiece "What Do I get?" will let ya know when it's done
And love to the Be-In Solarfest which occured 7/25-7/26. They pulled the whole thing off through 110+ degree heat and tornados. They so rock. i hosted the first part of Sunday's festivities and did a tribute for the 40th anniversary of Jimi Hendrix's passing. I ifinish the last chord of "Purple Haze" and it starts cloud-bursting! Last year, i incited a riot. They still love me! and lastly-A 0.5 STAR REVIEW WILL NEVER DETER ME -NEVER

MY PERFORMANCE AT A PEACE FESTIVAL INCITED A RIOT!!! OK!-so i'm getting ready to close the first night of the 2 day BE-IN/SOLARFEST. the band who went on before me, although quite enjoyable, got me quite pissed off by inviting the crowd to see them at another show they were doing that same night--DUDES--C'MON--I PRACTICED 2 MONTHS TO GET HERE-NOW YOU WANT TO TAKE MY AUDIENCE AWAY? HELL!-so i finally take the stage, no one was passing the beachball around as they were doing with the prior band, but they were dancing and moshing and generally enjoying. from a mosh, a fight ensues, which from my view from the stage seems no more wild than many of the other mosh pits i 'inspired' over the years. next thing i know, i'm being shut down in minute #44 of my set-in the middle of a song yet. the police came to shut down the place. my use of bad words and angst driven music are blamed. damn guys-LIKE ALWAYS--I JUST WANTED TO GIVE THE SHOW OF MY LIFE-NOT TO START A RIOT-DAMN-SO IT GOES. WATCH FOR MY 17TH CD "Meet The Gangsta Rabbi #17(subtitled "the King of Obscuro Punk"-it comes at ya this autumn

I mean, this jewish gangsta rabbi came out, it was him playing the bass to drum beats. . . . then he played the bass with a flute. . . the nostalgia wore off after five minutes. . . The other bands were ok. Nothing spectacular, i'm glad this blogger gave me special mention--but--with me--the 'nostalgia' never wears off-i look straight out of the early 70's--perhaps my 'novelty' only lasted 5 minutes--i registered to the blog group to post my response--but in 5 days they still haven't approved me--bummer

STEVE LIEBERMAN finishes work on his 4th CD called LIQUIDITIA-455. the bass on this one sounds real cool playing chords because of a cheap little digitech rp50 pedal-i can make it sound like true punk-GUITAR so i have a lot of straight punk songs as YADA YADA YA YA, JETHRO TULL FANTASYkAMP,OVERTHROW THE STATUS QUO,AND A cover of that unfriendly loungester Andy Kim's only hit "Rock Me Gently".FOR THE HEAVY NON-COMPUTER GENERATED TECHNO, THERE'S DOG PARK, PUR'IM IN THE GHETTO, AND THE DANCE METAL OF WALKING MY DIkTATOR. Something for everybody.

The Madness started here just LAST YEAR!!!
Famed Brazilian Progressive Music expert Rafael Almeida Goncalvez did an in-depth analysis of the music of Steve Lieberman, in 11/2002 to determine what genre it fit in ,in the progressive scene. SURPRISE SURPRISE, He had to create a separate genre PROGRESSIVE PUNK for the music of American multi-instrumentalist Steve Lieberman adding "generally a very difficult listen"
STEVE LIEBERMAN, THE GANGSTA RABBI & HIS BAD'LAN PROG-PUNK MOVEMENT
STEVE LIEBERMAN- One-man BASS Revolutionary, eccentric FLUTIST and exotic MULTI-INSTRUMENTALIST writes, performs and creates what has been called the most original brand of music on this side of the Diaspora,fusing punk, industrial,progressive rock,world/folk with Hebrew-American influence.To further add to the craziness, he does this all with no guitars or keyboards! All the chords and leads are performed on his now trademark 4-fold overdriven Bass supplemented by a huge array of Transverse Flutes, Happy Flutes,Exotics as the Shahnai, Bombard, Dvoyanka, Chanter,Snake Charmer,Spike Fiddle, Clarinet, Trombone amongst others!!
August 27,2002 saw the release of Steve Lieberman's first full-length CD, "Bad'lania Rising", a 21-song propulsive mixture of the secular and the holy. While the anchor song,"Big Carburetor 29" made a great showing on the internet charts,the surprise hit was "Gangsta Rabbi",the story of Steve Lieberman's religious isolation from the Hebrew masses which actually spent 8 consecutive days at #1 on MP3.com's Jewish/Israeli and Mideastern/North African charts while he had also topped the charts in hardcore punk,industrial,alt. country,mod,garage and alt hip-hop.whew!! who would have thunk it???
While the buzz (and mixed reviews) for "Bad'lania Rising" was still happening, Lieberman went back into his Spring-Green Bad'lan Studio on 12/13/2002 to put down tracks on his next full-length cd to be called "Jewish Lightning" As a expression of gratefulness for the Hebrews in the Diaspora who supported "Bad'lania Rising", "Jewish Lightning" promises to be politically and religiously controversial, deeply exploring anti-racism,the Holocaust and the Biblical themes touched on in "Bad'lania" The anchor song "Astroland Spring-Green '415" hit #2 for an incredible 9 days on MP3.com's Garage Punk Charts!!! Can't wait to see what the critics will say about this one!!!!
