Late Broadcast

Gonna go waaay out on a limb and guess that the director of this video likes Andy Warhol.

I was a little shocked when I learned that Trish Keenan, the singer from Broadcast, had died. Of pneumonia no less, and I wouldn't figure you'd die of that in a country (the UK in this case) with universal medical coverage. It's sad, in any case, that she slipped away so young.

I wasn't familiar with the band but listened to this and to a couple of others I found after looking. She had a very lovely and haunting voice - interesting songs too.

I see what you meant about Warhol but he's the epitome of 60's art styling so it's not surprising.

If you remember, Jim Henson also died tragically young of pneumonia. It's sad.

Oh yeah, Jim Henson. That was a rather sad surprise too.

Warhol was pretty fascinating in himself. And the Factory was interesting. The idea of him hanging out at Studio 54, less so.
