Such terribly, terribly sad news today that Trisha Keenan of Broadcast has died after contracting swine flu and pneumonia. Â Laura was a big Broadcast fan too, so I know she will be upset by this as well. Â I didn’t actually see Broadcast live until the ATP Festival in 2010; in fact I have to admit I was somewhat late picking up on how talented they were, retrospectively getting their first 2 albums some years after they were first released. Â They were a special band to a lot of people, and I know Trisha will be dearly missed. I will say no more, and let songs, videos and photos do the speaking.
Here is my favourite Broadcast song, Man Is Not A Bird
Here is a fine live TV performance by Broadcast
This is probably the best video/song combo available on Youtube to illustrate what a great band Broadcast were, and what a great voice Trisha had.
