The seventies rockers Geordie marked their 50th anniversary in 2022 with a brand new single Red, White and Blue which was released at the end of 2022. The song was written by original main-man songwriter Vic Malcolm (now resident in Cyprus) and features vocals by Terry Slesser is precursor for a new Geordie album that’s been in progress for some time. It was whilst visiting life-long friend Vic Malcolm that Terry Slesser (formerly singer with Back Street Crawler) laid down some vocals with Vic for an impromptu project that has now morphed into what will be a new Geordie album of typical rocking tracks from the ever prolific Vic Malcolm. The follow up single She’s My Sugar was released March 2023 and the new single See You Now was released May 2023. The original line-up from 1972 included Vic Malcolm (lead guitar), Tom Hill (bass guitar), Brian Gibson (drums) and Brian Johnson (lead vocals) who later joined AC/DC. Their first single, “Don’t Do That” broke into the Top 40 of the UK singles chart in December 1972 and the successor “All Because Of You” peeked at no. 6. The rest is history and the future is yet to come. Geordie are still here – Hope You Like It.

One of the most iconic bands to come out of Newcastle-upon-Tyne, England is Geordie. The band was formed in 1971, and their name is a nod to the nickname given to people from the Tyneside region. The band’s original lineup consisted of lead vocalist Brian Johnson, guitarist Vic Malcolm, bassist Tom Hill, and drummer Brian Gibson. Geordie quickly gained a following in their hometown and throughout the North East, playing a mixture of hard rock and glam rock. Their first single, “Don’t Do That,” was released in 1972 and reached the Top 40 in the UK Singles Chart. The band’s debut album, “Hope You Like It,” followed in 1973 and featured the hit single “All Because of You.” Geordie continued to tour and release albums throughout the 1970s, with Brian Johnson’s powerful vocals and Vic Malcolm’s guitar skills becoming the band’s signature sound. Their biggest hit came in 1973 with “All Because Of You,” which reached number 6 in the UK charts. The band also toured with acts such as Thin Lizzy and Nazareth. In 1980, Brian Johnson left Geordie to join AC/DC, and the band disbanded soon after. However, their legacy lives on, with their music continuing to influence bands to this day. Brian Johnson’s success with AC/DC also helped to bring attention to Geordie’s back catalog, which has since been reissued and remastered. Geordie may have been short-lived, but their impact on the rock music scene cannot be underestimated. They remain a beloved part of Newcastle’s musical heritage, and the band of today continues to inspire new generations of fans by making new music and touring. Geordie are still here!
