The Penguin Cafe was Simon Jeffes's dream-inspired creative universe. It was a wonderful and strange musical world that fell largely silent when he died aged 49 in 1997. Now, thirteen years after his death, his son Arthur is revisiting the Penguin Cafe - playing his father's music and adding a few new pieces of his own. This record is a collection of some these new pieces. Matrix, Runout: CAP01476 DPC101DLT 01 QMM. Other Versions (3 of 3) View All. Cat.

Artist: Penguin Cafe Title Of Album: A Matter Of Life. Over a decade after Jeffes’ untimely death in 1997 his son, Arthur, has kicked a new group into life in homage and taken them on the road with a new album. This material was aired last year at the BBC Proms where it sat impressively well with works from the group’s previous 20-year incarnation, which is a compliment both to Jeffes Jr’s understanding of his father’s style and also to the timeless nature of that style

Stylistically, A Matter of Lif. s a near-perfect match with the Penguin Café Orchestra of old. It is undeniably easy-listening background music, but of the best possible kind: it can be a passive soundtrack but generally stands up just as well to direct attention. There are no stand-out 'hits' – no 'Music for a Found Harmonium' or 'Telephone and Rubber Band' – and the whole can feel a bit lacking in substance, but in terms of its aims – sort of a love letter to the original PCO music – it’s a definite success

Signs of Life is the fifth album by the Penguin Cafe Orchestra. It was recorded at the Penguin Cafe between 1985 and 1987 and released in March 1987. It includes "Perpetuum Mobile", one of their most famous songs. The album reached number 49 in the UK Albums Chart. All music composed by Simon Jeffes. Southern Jukebox Music" - 4:34. Horns of the Bull" - 4:30. The Snake and the Lotus (The Pond)" - 2:51.

Arthur Jeffes, son of Penguin Cafe Orchestra maestro Simon, produces a set of his own compositions in his father's style, to a certain amount of success, writes Robin Denselow. With the Penguin Cafe Orchestra, Simon Jeffes created some of the most unusual and delightful music of the last 40 years, an "imaginary folk" style that mixed classical and global influences with the patterns and repetition of systems music, with predictably quirky instrumentation. With his Music from the Penguin Cafe project two years ago, Arthur set out to revive those compositions, and now with his Penguin Cafe band he has recorded an album of his own compositions in much the same style.
