Thirteen years after Simon Jeffes death, his son, Arthur, has started playing his music again. Performing under the name Penguin Cafe, the younger Jeffes along with a new group of musicians is re-visiting his father s music and starting a new chapter in the story of this unique and strange creative world. Their sound is at once familiar and new, combining acoustic power and a beguiling, feisty charm. The Penguin Cafe s first year, 2009, saw them playing the Acoustic stage at Glastonbury, the main stages at Big Chill and Bestival among many other adventures. In 2010, one major highlight was playing at the Albert Hall at their own BBC Late Night Prom. Over these first two years, Arthur has been writing new material to compliment and respond to the old. A love-letter to the original music, A Matter Of Life... is the result of this endeavor and is one of the most startling, beautiful and extraordinary records of the year.
