The Penguin Cafe Orchestra was a collective of performing musicians founded by British guitarist, composer and arranger Simon Jeffes. Jeffes died in 1997 but members of the original PCO continue to play the music under a different name. Now known as The Orchestra That Fell To Earth, members of the one and only Original Penguin Cafe Orchestra - Geoffrey Richardson, Jennifer Maidman, Steve Fletcher, Annie Whitehead and Liam Genockey - continue to play the music.

Now rebooted as a foursome after a brief spell as a three-piece, Mercury Prize-nominated Portico Quartet have always been an impossible band to pin down. Sending out echoes of jazz, electronica, ambient music and minimalism, the group have created their own singular, cinematic sound over the course of five albums, from 2007 debut Knee-Deep in the North Sea to the recent, brilliant Living Fields.
