Penguin Café Orchestra

The Penguin Café Orchestra

…started out as an imaginary ‘concept’ ensemble following a dream [Simon] Jeffes had during a severe bout of food poisoning in 1972. In its earliest incarnation the PCO existed only as a recording project. Over the next 25 years this gradually fleshed out into a unique, 10 person hybrid of pop, avant garde and chamber music which fetched up performing all over the world.

Founder Simon Jeffes died in 1997. Listen.
