RIP Trish Keenan
« on: 15 Jan 2011, 09:17 »

Lead singer of Broadcast passed away this morning from complications of pneumonia.   Always have been a fan, The Noise Made By People was fantastic.

Very sad indeed. When I lived in Brighton they played a couple of times and came across as very nice folks. Trish was very friendly and very humble too. Broadcast have an incredible discography, I am struggling to think of another group with such consistency. I was listening to them for much of yesterday and her voice is one of the main things which made me interested in the first place. Tragic as it is, she left us some incredible music and I hope more people pick up a Broadcast record in the wake of this.

Rest in Peace, Trish.

I am doing this and it is really annoying to find out how great a band is right when they cease being a viable unit. Hey universe, what the hell? Why couldn't you throw this group my way when they were all still alive?  And yikes, she was only 47.

Well. She won't be forgotten.

You really can't go wrong. They definitely had a sound but it was such a good one that it doesn't matter.

You can listen to a really cool mix Trish made for a friend here.

In the description he expresses some regret that he never got to thank her for making the mix for him. In a way, I sort of feel the same. Not about the mix, but about all of the awesome music I have continued to discover as a result of listening to Haha Sound on a whim when I was younger. Just last week I finally got around to listening to The United States of America and it was really exciting, easily the best thirty odd minutes I have spent with a record in awhile. It is good to still be excited about discovering music and I feel like that is how Broadcast have always approached making records.

Thanks, Trish.
