Broadcast :: Black Session (La Maison de la Radio: Paris, France)

If you never had the pleasure of seeing Broadcast on tour, particularly in their early years with keyboardist Roj Stevens and guitarist Tim Felton, then this is for you. Actually, this is for everyone. It’s a dark and saddening time for fans of the band since the recent and sudden passing of singer/multi-instrumentalist Trish Keenan. But I can’t think of a better way to celebrate her life than to spread the group’s music around to as many people as possible. Broadcast’s Black Session from Paris, France – May 4th, 2000 is a perfect representation of their trademark electronic art-pop, Trish’s amazing voice and the band’s ability to transform experimental recordings into beautiful live performances.

This set features the original lineup that toured in support of their spectacular debut album, The Noise Made By People. It also includes all of those quirky electronic segues and dissonance between tracks, along with stellar renditions of early singles, albums cuts and B-sides like “Message From Home“, “Where Youth and Laughter Go“, “Echo’s Answer” and more. | s mcdonald

  1. This is awesome its so out of my current musical comfort zone but i like itbut i didnt think i would . I didnt even know i liked music like this thanks AD

  2. damn, that broke my heart reading this. i was waiting for them to put out some new trax, but i dont think it will be the same without trish and her amazing vocal style. no one in this decade sound like this band. RIP

  3. I was on the way home from work wasn’t diggin it at first then the bass line caught me and listened through (short piece on the radio). Loved it! Downloading as we speak.
    Damn its COLD
    Keep up the fresh jives bloggers.

  4. Does anyone know where to find a full copy of the Lamacq Session from 1997? I’ve only been able to tracks 5-8.

  5. I was lucky enough to see them supporting Tender Buttons during a lucky tour stop in NC, and it was as amazing as I’d hoped. Losing Trish was a Kurt Cobain-level event for a certain group of people, and I count myself as one of them. Thanks for the wonderful upload and helping keep their legacy alive!
