My Bloody Valentine's Debbie Googe was interviewed by Drowned In Sound a few months back while she was on the road playing with Primal Scream. DIS published the full interview today and it's a great read - she discussed playing with Primal Scream, confirmed a new MBV record was recorded (at the time of the interview Googe revealed Kevin Shields was "finishing it up") and talked about MBV's legacy:

"It's brilliant, yet also quite weird in a way that we became seminal for doing nothing. We never got that much press at the time. We never got many front covers.
