The faithful remnant of “the Few” have implored for the reissue of all things Allan Aguirre. The gods have listened. The creative genius behind this musical catalogue is of a high magnitude. There is much to celebrate in this Vinyl (and CDs!), remastered to perfection!  

With 2 full albums by Spy Glass Blüe and 4 full albums by Scaterd Few these long-awaited first-time on vinyl releases are unquestionably an essential listening. All the music has been remastered by the competent Rob Colwell (Bombworks Sound), the impeccable box and album layout art by Scott Waters (No Life Til Metal), and is a collaborative between Retroactive Records and Allan Aguirre’s own Faceless Gen Recording Company. Only 200 Vinyl will be made, so make sure to get yours. Two words: Get Stoked!!  ....Doug Peterson / Music Critic

ABOUT THE ALBUM

After going on hiatus from bands and albums for four years, Allan came back in 2002 with his own label Accidental Sirens and two albums. The first of the albums was Omega No. 5, slated as Scaterd Few’s parting shot. Allan imported members from the Dallas band Greyskull to record and tour the album. Bringing in an accomplished guitarist and bassist allowed for a virtuoso return to the uninhibited spirit that made Scaterd Few’s music legendary. After four songs of fast relentless punk, the apocalyptic Rise Up!  switches gears to tasty hope-filled reggae. Then four more fast and furious cuts sung and slung rapid fire, addressing topics of family, carnality and worldly wealth. Then another reggae number, Tomorrow, chimes in, this time a more traditional variant. This jovial number describes in lush detail the imagery of the afterlife experience of a faithful believer. Such an under-rated song. Sheol, a dark and lurid soundscape, precedes the punk closer of Secret – Secret, a UK-flavored rampage on the travesty of sleeping with the corruption that will bring about destruction. The Outro on the end is a short segment from Kill The Sarx II (Apocalypse), an appropriate way to sign off on the Scaterd Few legacy. Some have declared Omega No. 5 as Sin Disease Part II.  It could be - but without a doubt, it's fast, it's furious, and it's brilliant. Just like dancing in the circle pit, Omega No 5 is a reminder of just how good a punch to the gut and a kick to the face can feel.  Limited to just 200 units on vinyl, it's been remastered by Rob Cowell of Bombworks Sound, and comes with a 12x12 insert.  Play it loudly, but try not to break your neck!


...MORE ABOUT THE ALBUM
After going on hiatus from bands and albums for four years, Allan came back in 2002 with his own label Accidental Sirens and two albums. The first of the albums was Omega No. 5, slated as Scaterd Few’s parting shot. Allan imported members from the Dallas band Greyskull to record and tour the album. Bringing in an accomplished guitarist and bassist allowed for a virtuoso return to the uninhibited spirit that made Scaterd Few’s music legendary.

Taking flight from the starting gate, Run If You Can echoes the energy and vibe found on Kill The Sarx off of Sin Disease. Resistance, a no-nonsense admonishment to resist the games played by corporate bloodsuckers, keeps the musical trajectory at full throttle. Next, Fair Is He, another one hovering at warp speed, is a play on the word “pharisee:” “Coursing veins of contradiction, Seeking whom to heap affliction, Fruitful is your dereliction, Let’s go have a crucifixion.”

Just after four songs of fast relentless punk, the apocalyptic Rise Up!  switches gears to tasty hope-filled reggae. Then four more fast and furious cuts sung and slung rapid fire, addressing topics of family, carnality and worldly wealth. Then another reggae number, Tomorrow, chimes in, this time a more traditional variant. This jovial number describes in lush detail the imagery of the afterlife experience of a faithful believer. Such an under-rated song.

Only hearkens the listener back to the Sin Disease familial U. It’s a spirited song with a reminder that Jesus is “the only friend you need that will see you all the way.” Sheol, a dark and lurid soundscape, precedes the punk closer of Secret – Secret, a UK-flavored rampage on the travesty of sleeping with the corruption that will bring about destruction. The Outro on the end is a short segment from Kill The Sarx II (Apocalypse), an appropriate way to sign off on the Scaterd Few legacy.

I am reluctant to declare Omega No. 5 as Sin Disease Part II, though the references and similarities are intact. Some of the compositions on Omega No. 5 could have benefitted from an outside ear, as the album sounds a tad analogous. Though with these songs remastered and repackaged, it is an amazing album to revisit. The song writing is more accessible than previous SF albums, and the in-your-face punk fare still bears freshness and vitality over twenty years later.   (Doug Peterson / Music Critic)
