Mystic theft

"rkl were one of the most gifted and dedicated bands in the punk rock scene, when they were young and naive they signed with mystic records they were payed nothing(1 large pizza actually) for their debut release. it sold extremely well and the band recieved nothing. now that 3 members of that band have passed away mystic(known throughout the scene as "mistake records") are trying to rip the band off again with this release, PLEASE WAIT ON THIS PURCHASE, the families of vocalist jason sears,drummer bomer, and former drummer derrick plourd and the remaining members of the band are in the process of securing profits from this release for the families of the deceased. mystic records suck, they rip off bands ask NOFX.
thanks and remember.... KEEP LAUGHING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
A Must-Own for Old School Hardcore Fans!!!

"RKL was one of the first 'Hardcore' bands that I got into, back when I was intoduced to this style of music in the late 80's.

KEEP LAUGHING is pretty basic, straight forward Old School Hardcore: Hyper fast drumming, random intros of basslines, reasonably short songs, socially concious lyrics simply shouted out, and of course, simple, yet very catchy guitar riffing. Lots of short little guitar solos, too. Nothing really all that ground breaking, but they definatly had their own sound. Another good thing was that they did not have that Macho Tough Guy attitude that comes across in a lot of Hardcore. I myself am a drummer, and I used to listen to this record over and over and over, listening to Bommer's kit bashing, and then trying to play it myself.

If you are into stuff like BLINK 182, SUM 41, GREEN DAY, GOOD CHARLOTTE and all that other radio friendly so called 'Punk', I really don't think you will dig RKL. This was true, basic, straight-to-the-point Hardcore from back in the day, when it wasn't trendy to be punk."
One of Nardcore's finest: RKL

"This is some of the best, old school punk that Nardcore has to offer. The songs: Lies, U.S. Steel, Adolescent Death, and No respect make the CD woth it alone. Then there's more.If you like old school, hardcore punk that you'r probably not familiar with, then Buy it. I have many RKL cd's and this one is my favorite."
