Profile:
Hailing from Birmingham, Broadcast, formed of Trish Keenan (vocals), Roj Stevens (keyboards), James Cargill (bass), Tim Felton (guitar) and Steve Perkins (drums), first appeared on Wurlitzer Jukebox back in 1996 with their first EP, Accidentals. Within a year, they had released two more EPs on Duophonic, collected on Work & Non Work, released on Warp, in 1997.

It would take nearly three years for Echo’s Answer, their next EP, to be released, shortly followed by the band’s first album, The Noise Made By People, and three more EPs. This profusion of EPs has shown that, far from being a simple tool to promote their albums, they are actually a platform for the band to explore and take their sound to uneasy territories.

Broadcast’s intimate experimental pop is fuelled with references to the work of the seminal BBC Radiophonic Workshop, Ennio Morricone or John Barry. Often associated with Stereolab in the early days, the sound of the band has developed considerably since.

Lead singer Trish Keenan died of pneumonia on 14 January 2011 at the age of 42.

"I'll always wait, it's never too late to color me in.
............
Today or next year I'll always be here
If you want to color me in."

Haunting and joyous, this band simply does not play out like so many others.

Just bought the vinyl bundle on bleep,can't wait to hear this bands material pre-2009 (all I've heard up till now is the joint lp with the focus group and 'berberian sound studio').

a very unique band. they will be missed. hopefully their material will get re-released on vinyl, as the prices for the lps are horrendous.

It's awful when the first thing you learn about an amazing band is that the singer is dead :c
