RRCD1644 Scaterd Few - Sin Disease Gold CD 732131700787


I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, Sin Disease is one of the greatest albums ever to emerge from our scene. Romald Domkus (born Allan Aguirre) and company unleashed a wonderfully chaotic debut album, with production from Terry Taylor (DA/Daniel Amos/Swirling Eddies/Lost Dogs) that set CCM on its head! 
                         --Loyd Harp / Phantom Tollbooth Review

"Merciless, brutal, neurotic, Tourettic, and consistently stunning, Scaterd Few's debut didn't push the boundaries of rock -- it annihilated them. Allan Aguirre's vocal delivery was chilling: a wild, unconstrained howl that went from gothic moan to banshee yelp within the space of a single lyric. He sings like a man on fire, wild-eyed and crazy, yelping out each dire prophecy as if every word might be his last. The band's music is equally urgent. Scaterd Few summoned a mad-scientist hybrid of dub, reggae, post-punk, and heavy metal that outshone even visionary avatars like the Pop Group." -- 

A real gem that hasn’t lost it’s energy after almost a decade, and whose impact will probably never fully be known Opuszine Reviews


Mixing up a wide range of influences, from Bowie-esque glam to Bad Brains-style reggae, hardcore, and punk, the music on the two recordings contained on these CDs defies trends and often categorization. Sin Disease, the band's debut, relentlessly pounds you over the head with short songs full of snarl and bite...   --Brad Caviness / Music Critic

Raw like the Stooges, but more musically diverse. Amidst Allan Aguirre's howls, you get a fantastic blend of post-punk and reggae, that's sometimes alarming and often unnerving. Think Bad Brains meets Minor Threat. At 16 tracks, Scaterd Few also gave a lot of bang for the buck, albeit with a number of songs in the 1 to 2 min. range. Super record.

Perhaps the single most controversial Christian rock album of all-time! A decade after it's release, HM Magazine called Sin Disease “the record that decisively ended the ’80s” (for Christian music) and also “Christian music’s best punk album ever.” Lyrically, Sin Disease deals with such topics as a friend’s death as a result of gang violence
(“Lights Out”) and cocaine addiction (“Glass God”). The opening track, “Kill the Sarx,” uses violent imagery in its graphic interpretation of a biblical theme (Galatians 5:24; sarx is the New Testament Greek word for “flesh”). The Christian scene had never been exposed to such stark/dark themes in 1990 (a year before Nevermind). The photo of Allan Aguirre for the album cover originally showed him shirtless, sporting “wild” dreadlocks. The locks remained, but the record company actually drew in a
shirt over the singer’s bare chest to minimize perceived offense. Yet, in the midst of all this controversy was one of the most brilliant, creative, transcendent and earth-shaking rock records of all-time. Rarely has one single album had such a profound impact on how we think and see the world.  Yet, Sin Disease did all that, and more.  Produced by Terry Taylor (Daniel Amos) and Allan R. Aguirre, the band ascended far beyond what its raw demos hinted was possible. Notably, the band supported the album with an appearance at Cornerstone Festival, and a tour with mainstream icon, HR of Bad Brains.
Never before reissued on CD, the album has been expertly remastered by J Powell at Steinhaus, features an 8-page booklet in a jewel case, and each CD comes with a Scaterd Few Ltd Collector Card!  Limited to just 1000 units, grab this treasure while you can!
