 In June 1983, Scaterd Few went into White Fields studios to record an 11-song demo with Taylor as the producer and Thom Roy as the engineer. Some of the material from this time was later released on their album //Out of the Attic//. They attempted to shop the material around to Christian labels, but none were interested. The band continued on and off until 1985, performing live about a dozen times. In 1985, Aguirre made a tape of the material that would later become //Out of the Attic// and ended the band. The band's sound man Drew Fischer started playing the tape at shows around the nation, and people would sometimes recognize Aguirre from that tape. In June 1983, Scaterd Few went into White Fields studios to record an 11-song demo with Taylor as the producer and Thom Roy as the engineer.

-In 1989, Allan began work on Scaterd Few material again with brother/original bassist Omar DomkusWorking with [[Terry Scott Taylor]] and [[Gene Eugene]], their first new material was released in 1990 on [[Alarma Records]]. Sin Disease was critically well received, though its lyrical content and rumors (of being Rastafarian and not traditional Christian) caused a national pull from Zondervan Bookstores. The band played Christian festivals such as Cornerstone,​ but they didn't limit themselves to Christian venues. They toured with secular artists such as Bad Brains, and would play at explicitly non-Christian events such as an Earth First event. The band ran into further trouble in 1991 when, in an interview, Aguirre admitted to smoking pot. These factors led to the band being dropped from Alarma'​s roster.+While watching the Tiananmen Square Protests on TV in 1989, Aguirre wrote a song about the incident called “Tiananmen Square.” He also had a vision of his band playing Cornerstone in 1990, so he called his brother Omar and made a plan to get Scaterd Few back together. They had their brother ​Drew join them, but couldn'​t get Cygnet guitarist Paul Figueroa to joinThey found Sam West to play drums and started doing some shows, as well as writing new songs and re-writing old songs.

 Their next effort at making an album, which eventually resulted in the 1994 release of //​Jawboneofanass//,​ was a direct result of the aftermath of //Sin Disease//. The album was recorded three times. The first time, the band again worked with Gene Eugene and Terry Taylor. This recording was made for the general market under the auspices of Vox Vinyl. The second recording was done with Dave Hackbarth (of the band [[Undercover]]) and Terry Taylor for [[Micheal Knott]]'​s [[Blonde Vinyl Records]]. Neither of these versions were released. The third version was produced independently with assistance from Mark Rodrieguez of [[Mortal]] / Blood fame. Their next effort at making an album, which eventually resulted in the 1994 release of //​Jawboneofanass//,​ was a direct result of the aftermath of //Sin Disease//.
