A lot of noise has been generated recently about Matisyahu “the Hasidic reggae superstar”. This post is about someone else. Curly Oxide. I heard his story on This American Life last June. Here is the audio. Starts at 7 minutes. With the help of Vic Thrill Chaim went from being a Hasidic jew, to a full rock star, and back. It’s a really interesting story. Listen to it now or wait for the movie version that’s being written by Tina Fey.
