RIP Trish Keenan of Broadcast

Sad news to start a Friday, or any day: Trish Keenan of influential UK experimental electronic pop act Broadcast has died, according to a statement released by Warp Records. News circulated yesterday that Keenan had been hospitalized since Christmas with pneumonia after contracting the H1N1 virus in Australia where she and her band were on tour.

As we wait for more details, the full statement from Warp, released a short time ago, is posted below. A few days earlier I heard "America's Boy" on WZBC while driving into work, so that's what's playing in my head as I type this. 

"It is with great sadness we announce that Trish Keenan from Broadcast passed away at 9am this morning in hospital. She died from complications with pneumonia after battling the illness for two weeks in intensive care.

Our thoughts go out to James, Martin, her friends and her family and we request that the public respect their wishes for privacy at this time.

This is an untimely tragic loss and we will miss Trish dearly - a unique voice, an extraordinary talent and a beautiful human being. Rest in Peace."
