My Bloody Valentine bassist Debbie Googe has told Drowned In Sound the group’s long, long awaited follow-up to the influential 1991 LP ‘Loveless‘ is finally close to completion.
“It will definitely come out as it’s pretty much finished,” she has revealed. “I mean, it’s impossible to talk about time with Kevin, but in terms of percentage-wise, he’s got one more track he wants to do then that’s it. Everything else is recorded.”
Later Googe admitted she has only played a very small part in the recording of the album, with chief songwriter Kevin Shields taking on the bulk of the work. Instead, Googe has become more familiar with the forthcoming Primal Scream record after filling in on bass duties following the departure of Mani back to his first home, The Stone Roses, before the Scottish band confirmed the appointment of Simone Butler in October.
“I’ve heard more of the new Primal Scream record than I have the new My Bloody Valentine one,” she explained.
My Bloody Valentine have also added an extra date to the short UK tour they announced yesterday, and will now play two nights at the Hammersmith Apollo on March 12th and 13th 2013 after stops at the Glasgow Barrowlands (March 9th) and
Manchester Apollo (March 10th).
