Trish Keenan

I’ve just read on the web that Trish Keenan, vocalist and one half of Broadcast, died on Friday morning following complications with pneumonia arising from swine flu. She was 42. Broadcast have been making highly acclaimed records for Warp since 1997, fusing 60s pop art and modern electronics, 2003’s The Ha Ha Sound being a personal favourite (the cd version coming in a lovely hardback book). 2009’s Broadcast And The Focus Group Investigate Witch Cults Of The Radio Age was chock full of interesting and arresting moments, retro and futuristic at the same time. This is Two Lone Swordsmen’s remix of Come On Let’s Go from 2000, one of the first records I bought using the then-newly-fangled-to-me internet mail order system at Warp. RIP Trish Keenan.
