South Florida's Last Laugh seems like almost like a relic these days; almost completely unaware of the last five years, the band seems firmly rooted in mid-`90s skatepunk in the South Californian tradition. That's not necessarily a bad thing, mind you, but listening to Your Regrets feels almost like.

South Florida's Last Laugh seems like almost like a relic these days; almost completely unaware of the last five years, the band seems firmly rooted in mid-`90s skatepunk in the South Californian tradition. That's not necessarily a bad thing, mind you, but listening to Your Regrets feels almost like unearthing a long lost demo from a band hoping to land a deal with Fat Wreck Chords, head into the studio with Ryan Greene and perform alongside Pennywise and No Use for a Name on the Warped Tour.

The problem isn't so much the time period that the find themselves locked into, but the fact that the band doesn't offer much more than what you've heard in the past; perhaps the first single from the album, a cover of the Rolling Stones' "Paint It Black" is kind of indicative of this problem.

In the end though, if you take it for what it is, a fun throwback to the age of Sega Genesis, Lollapalooza, Bill Clinton and skatepunk, you'll have a good time with the record. In short, a decent enough release, but one that doesn't offer much over what you've heard before.

I remember listening to this band a few years ago and being pretty into it. I'm checking this out, and the kotton mouth kings relation just makes it even more ridiculous.

We just finished recording a NEW song called "Camp R.A.D.D." The song features the mighty Johny Richter from the Kotton Mouth Kings. The song is about Camp Radd (Richter and Dangerous's day care) Over the past few years while touring in southern california, Dangerous and Richter let us crash at there house for weeks at a time. So much fun! Anyways the song is about those good times. We recorded the song at Avalon studio here in florida, while Charley flew out to Cali to record the vocals with Richter. Big thanks goes to him and Murphy for setting everything up.

hahahahahaha no.

Wow, I'm surprised you gave them a 3/5. I agree with your description completely, but I really don't think these guys pull it off, and the whole album seems weak, especially when your lead single is a cover of a song that already has about 500 better covers of it available.

...what? no.

Does this band do nothing but sing about smoking pot like the Kottonmouth Kings? If they do I don't even want to fucking bother.

Score is for the Kottonmouth Kings.

Good album. If you LOVE skate punk than get this. A very solid release for the subnoize camp.
