Trish Keenan, 1968-2011
The entire staff of Brainwashed want to extend our hearts to the close friends and family of Trish Keenan of Broadcast. Brainwashed met Broadcast first in 2003 to do an Eye feature and had the pleasure of saying hi whenever they were back in town. She was always very funny and sincerely sweet.
I wish I'd thanked her then for the influence of Broadcast's music on my life. ¬†Her soft, haunting voice coupled so perfectly with the smoky drums and the hypnotic synths as the band evolved and changed throughout the band's 15-year history. ¬†I'd thank her for the introduction to the film Valerie and Her Week of Wonders, for her good humor and charm onstage, and for the memory of having bought The Noise Made By People the day I met my husband, as well as so many other imprints on my mind.
Thank you, Trish. ¬†You'll never be forgotten.
