"If you are looking for smooth vocals, catchy fun sing along songs then look elsewhere. Saturday Matinee is everything a punk album should be; It’s loud, it’s raw, in your face and not pretty. The drumming is fantastic. Marlene is really a force to be dealt with and the melodies (courtesy of Devin) are wonderfully distorted. James is able to go from singing to screaming his heart out in less than five seconds. This trio was made for each other. Le Panique is dancing to the beat of their own drummer and before long you will be too."
"Take what's great about bands like Bad Religion and A.F.I., then rev them up times ten, stick a pair of jumper cables on your earlobes and connect to a live car battery and you may have captured the energy of Le Panique....They are young veterans on their way to being the new darlings of punk rock from San Francisco."
