RIP Trish Keenan (of Broadcast)

by Bill Pearis


We lost a great one today — Broadcast‘s Trish Keenan. An official statement from Warp’s website:

It is with great sadness we announce that Trish Keenan from Broadcast passed away at 9am this morning in hospital. She died from complications with pnuemonia after battling the illness for two weeks in intensive care.

Our thoughts go out to James, Martin, her friends and her family and we request that the public respect their wishes for privacy at this time.

This is an untimely tragic loss and we will miss Trish dearly – a unique voice, an extraordinary talent and a beautiful human being. Rest in Peace.

Broadcast were last here in October 2009 when they toured with Atlas Sound. Their 2000 debut The Noise Made by People is one of the great albums of the ’00s, due in no small part to Keenan’s icy coo. All their records are worth checking out. So sad, too soon, she’ll be missed. Some Broadcast videos after the jump.
