Saddened by the passing of Trish Keenan from Broadcast
I've seen Broadcast play live five times in various locations in Glasgow and Edinburgh. They were... at one point... my favourite "must see" live band. I have great memories from these gigs... they were from a different time with dear friends who I have now lost contact with.
As such... I was filled with sadness when I heard that the voice and mainstay of Broadcast - Trish Keenan - had passed away due to pneumonia yesterday. Hers was a unique voice that added to a unique sound... and I will sorely miss her. I had always dreamt of seeing them live one last time... to emerse myself in their wonderful 60's inspired soundscapes and visuals.
The world has lost a truly gifted and talented woman. My thoughts go out to those she has left behind.
