Primal Scream Announce New Permanent Bass Player, Simone Butler

Written by Marc Zanotti on October 11, 2012

NME have reported that longstanding rock act Primal Scream has finally found a permanent member for their vacant bassist position. The newly announced bass player goes by the name of Simone Butler, who at this stage appears to be somewhat of a mystery, with NME putting the call out to anyone who has any background information on the newest member of Primal Scream.

Although the story of where Butler comes from and how she came to join the band will most likely be made public soon enough, for now it is simply known that she will be taking over bass slapping duties for Gary Manny ‘Mani’ Mounfield. As reported by NME way back at the very beginning of 2012, Mani played his last gig with Primal Scream at Edinburgh’s Hogmanay Bash on New Year’s Eve. Mani decided to leave Primal Scream in order to dedicate himself to the reformation of The Stone Roses, who Australian fans were delighted to learn yesterday will be coming to Australia as part of Future Music 2013.

Primal Scream temporarily enlisted Debbie Googe from My Bloody Valentine as a touring bassist. As interestingly noted by Consequence of Sound, she actually filled in for Mani when Primal Scream opened up for The Stone Roses at Heaton Park on June 29, 2012.

Australian fans will get their fist glimpse of bassist Butler when Primal Scream touch down for Meredith Music Festival 2012, which will see the Scottish outfit also play a series of sideshows in most capital cities. Music Feeds will be sure to update you when more information on Butler is divulged. As for now, let’s enjoy some tunes..
