...R.I.P. Trish Keenan...

Trish Keenan (1968-2011)

This past Friday, Trish Keenan, the lead singer of the band Broadcast, past away after struggling with pneumonia and its complications for the past couple of weeks. Whether you are familiar or unfamiliar with the 42 year olds' music, check out Broadcast's excellent live recording from back in 2000 entitled Black Session... http://www.mediafire.com/?22gwc9c686cygud. I found it over at Aquarium Drunkard. Check it out.

Also, I posted a mixtape below that Trish recently made for her friend, David Brewster. Here's the original post describing the context for the mixtape:

“Trish Keenan from Broadcast passed away on Friday 14th January 2011, she was an amazing, talented woman and will be missed by many.
In December 2010 Trish sent me a mix CD she compiled, I never thanked her. Its called Mind Bending Motorway Mix and I want to share it with you, please pass the link on, share it far and wide, its a little tribute to a (as a friend referred to her today) exhilarating woman.
Sorry I don’t have a tracklist and to be honest I like it that way. I think its less about who you’re listening to on this compilation and more about the fact you are listening to something that Trish took time to select and compile for me and in turn yourselves. Please just enjoy the music.
I would send stuff to Trish every now and then and she would send bits back to me (I have a pile of films about witches that inspired the last lp with Focus Group still to watch). The last thing she sent me was this mix and the Ghost Box 7 inch with Focus Group. It was a lovely gift and my friends and I listened to it on our way to ATP in December. Anyway I was rubbish, crap excuse of being busy and moving home (but how much time does a text message take?) so I never thanked her for it until last Sunday, by which time she would have been in hospital. I’m sure she knows how much I appreciated the CD and reading everyones reactions to it has been overwhelming, she touched so many lives. I miss her and will continue to do so for a long time, but my thoughts are with James and Trish’s family, I can’t imagine what they are going through. Never miss an opportunity to say thank you or I love you because you’ll never get that moment back.”

Give this great music a listen.....
