Now Listening: This Is Scaterd Few

When Scaterd Few's "Sin Disease" came out in 1990, it was a gamechanger for a high school punk kid in the podunk town of Liberty Hill (Hell?), Texas. Not only did they look legit, they sounded legit. Their crazy blend of punk and reggae brought to mind bands like Bad Brains and Jane's Addiction. The lyrics were also unapologetic, thought-provoking, and exciting. The back picture of the cassette release, which I strangely couldn't find anywhere on the internet, was an inspiration to a rebellious Christian kid who wanted to go against the grain but wanted to do it for the right reasons.
