Primal Scream name My Bloody Valentine's Debbie Googe as new bassist

Primal Scream have announced My Bloody Valentine's Debbie Googe as their new touring bass player.

Googe, who was a founding member of My Bloody Valentine and also a member of Showpony and the Bikini Mutants, will join the band's live line-up for the foreseeable future.

She replaces Gary 'Mani' Mountfield in the band's line-up. Mountfield left to rejoin The Stone Roses for their reunion tour late last year.

Googe's first shows with Primal Scream will be three dates in Scotland this summer. The gigs kick off at Inverness Ironworks on June 14, before moving on to Aberdeen Music Hall on June 15. The band wrap things up with a headline show at Dunoon's Queens Hall on June 16.

The band will then play a series of festivals appearances, including Isle Of Wight Festival, Hop Farm Festival and the newly created Festival Number 6.

Googe isn't the first member of My Bloody Valentine to play with Primal Scream: Kevin Shields joined the band both live and in the studio from 1997 - 2006.
