"The Matinee Idles have produced a beautifully soulful and odd record that burrows its way into your mind through its sheer relentlessness..."

-----------------------

"Kevin Barry paints startling images through his mutated trip-hop/funk soundscapes and they keep you guessing..."

-----------------------

the matinée idles live set up:

Kevin Barry Lead VOX/Guitar

Paddy Lyons Lead Guitar

Doug Sheridan Drums

Gordon Sheridan Bass

Ray Beggan Synth

"Take the time to listen to this record, give it its due and reap the rewards..."

----------------------

"It’s almost as if Ian Curtis has lived on and has been collecting obscure Parliament B-sides..."

-----------------------

 "It goes beyond comparison, it sounds new and it sounds like breaking ground. It’s a joy – a slow burning and earned joy – but a joy nonetheless..."

----------------------

"A deeply atmospheric record, A Festival of Colours bustles with musicality and glistening soundscapes. Tinged with post-rock and indie motifs the album is a serene, yet powerful journey into Kevin Barry’s music."
