Debbie Googe

Born 1962.


Deborah Ann "Debbie" Googe (born 24 October 1962) is an English musician, and the bassist for the alternative rock bands My Bloody Valentine and Primal Scream.

Before joining My Bloody Valentine, she lived in Yeovil, Somerset and played for a band called Bikini Mutants, who gigged with The Mob. Googe had moved from Yeovil to London, and in early 1985, an ex-girlfriend of hers recommended her as a bass player to Kevin Shields and Colm Ó Cíosóig of My Bloody Valentine. She joined the band after an audition in April 1985. She left the group in 1996, noting she "hadn't been happy for a long time".

Googe is known for her raucous style of bass playing in MBV's live performances.

Googe joined My Bloody Valentine's 2007 reunion, and their subsequent tours.

After leaving MBV in 1995, Googe briefly became a taxi driver. She formed Snowpony in 1996 with her then-girlfriend, Katharine Gifford, formerly of Stereolab. They released 3 albums and 4 EPs between 1997 and 2003.

She occasionally plays keyboards with the massed fuzz organ experimentalists band Pimmel and also plays drums and sings backing vocals for Rockhard.
