Having being a fan for several years, I finally got to see Broadcast twice in the last couple years, just as they were doing the Focus Group material – just brilliant stuff.
They had gotten to the stage where their set was split in two – the first half would be a short film, soundtracked live, followed by a set proper thereafter.
Amidst all the obtuse gadgetry and ageing synths, James Cargill’s stark form of playing guitar and bass, sat Trish Keenan’s voice.
Always haunting and quite serene; dark and beautiful, bleeding subtly into its surroundings.
One of my favourite bands of all time, lead signer Trish Keenan passed away today at the age of 42. She will be missed.
