In they appeared at the BBC Proms with Northumbrian piper Kathryn Tickell. With the Penguin Cafe name now being used by Arthur, the original PCO members who wanted to continue playing their music needed an alternative name.
Four of them, multiinstrumentalists Geoffrey Richardson and Jennifer Maidman, trombonist Annie Whitehead, and pianist Steve Fletcher, have since played some festivals as The Anteaters.
They have been joined by percussionist Liam Genockey, well known as a member of Steeleye Span , and who played live with the Penguins in Italy in the s.
The name 'Anteaters' came from an incident on the PCO tour of Japan when Simon Jeffes discovered there was a craze for penguins in the country. He joked that, if the fashion changed, the orchestra would have to change its name to 'The Anteater Cafe Orchestra'.
In October , the same lineup appeared at the Canterbury Festival in Kent, UK, performing two hours of original PCO music as The Orchestra That Fell To Earth.
They have continued to perform under that name. The Penguin Cafe Orchestra's most famous piece may be "Telephone and Rubber Band", which is based around a tape loop of a UK telephone ring tone intersected with an engaged tone , accompanied by the twanging of a rubber band.
It is featured on the soundtracks of Nadia Tass 's film comedy Malcolm and Oliver Stone's film Talk Radio , and in a long-running advertising campaign for the telecoms company One2One now T-Mobile.
The single " In The Meantime " by New York City-based English rockers Spacehog featured a tweaked and fine-tuned sample of "Telephone and Rubber Band".
It was also the trademark song of Caloi en su tinta, an Argentinean TV show about artistic animation.
The tape loop was recorded when Jeffes was making a phone call and discovered he was hearing a combination of a ring tone and an engaged signal due to a fault in the system.
He recorded it on an answering machine. Another famous tune featured in Malcolm among other films is "Music for a Found Harmonium", which Jeffes wrote on a harmonium he had found in a back street in Kyoto , where he was staying in the summer of after the ensemble's first tour of Japan.
He wrote that after installing the found harmonium "in a friend's house in one of the most beautiful parts at the edge of the city," he "frequently visited this instrument during the next few months, and I remember the time fondly as one during which I was under a form of enchantment with the place and the time.
In the credits, many film actors and celebrities of the time invent their favourite name for an imagined child. It was not included in the soundtrack released from the movie.
Because its rhythm, tempo and simple structure made it suitable for adaptation as a reel , it was subsequently recorded by many Irish traditional musicians , including Patrick Street , De Dannan , Kevin Burke and Sharon Shannon.
An Irish traditional version was used on the soundtrack of the film Hear My Song , made in Ireland in the early s. In , Patrick Street 's cover of "Music for a Found Harmonium" was featured in the film Napoleon Dynamite , and the following year in the film It's All Gone Pete Tong.
The Scottish folk rock band Rock Salt and Nails , from Shetland , also recorded a version of the song for their debut album Waves in Simon Jeffes composed music for the ballet Still Life at the Penguin Cafe , largely based on earlier compositions for the Penguin Cafe Orchestra.
Geoffrey Richardson co-wrote one of the pieces. Another of the group's well-known pieces is "Perpetuum Mobile" from their album Signs of Life .
It has been used in several films, television and radio programmes, including as the main theme of the Australian stop-motion animated film Mary and Max , and in the television adaptation of The Handmaid's Tale.
Another piece called "Numbers " was featured in a dance film shown on Mister Rogers' Neighborhood episode , when Mr. McFeely brings the video in to show.
The film featured dancers from Pittsburgh's Dance Alloy , who used fitness balls in the dance. A number of pieces including "Numbers ", "Perpetuum Mobile" and "Music for A Found Harmonium" were included on the soundtrack of the Channel 4 documentary series Road Dreams.
