A black day. Today news reaches us of Trish Keenan's tragic and untimely passing earlier this morning. In a press release from Warp Records, Martin Pike, manager of the band, confirmed the rumours that Keenan -the singer, songwriter and soul of Broadcast- died after being in intensive care for the past two weeks fighting complications brought on by pneumonia. The rumours started on the Facebook fan page where it was reported that, apparently, Keenan had contracted swine flu in early December during the band's tour of Australia, Malaysia and Singapore. We were reluctant to believe the Tweets about her death until Warp confirmed the sad news in the official statement. Keenan created some of the best music of recent times and she will be very sadly missed.
