The Last Broadcast

I've been meaning to get around to this for a while. At first I wanted to post some of Broadcast's B-sides and rarities after covering their three main albums in the Warped posts, but then while searching for recordings of Broadcast live (which are very hard to come by) I found this. A bootleg of a show in Australia, and of their last ever performances. It's been just over a year since the untimely death of lead singer Trish Keenan, who continues to remain one of my favourite voices in music. Broadcast were underrated for their entire recording career which I feel is a bit unfair, So I ask you to give them a listen, they absolutely deserve it.

You And Me In Time

The real 'wow' moment for me is that encore, it's just so beautifully poignant. James Cargill announced late last year he's working on making an album from leftover demo tapes left by Trish, rest assured you'll hear more about it as soon as I do.

Any chances you could/would post a downloadable link to this show? Thank you for the Soundcloud upload either way <3

It used to be available from Soundcloud but I think there's a limit - if you get in touch with me either on there (or any other way to message me) I can put it up somewhere for you temporarily!

Thank you! (I couldn't find your contact info here, so I messaged you on SoundCloud.)
