Geordie is a British rock band from Newcastle upon Tyne, England. It is active mainly during the 1970s.
The original formation (February 1972) includes Vic Malcolm (born Albert Victor Malcolm on December 3, 1946 in Newcastle upon Tyne) (solo guitar and vocals), Tom Hill (bass), Brian Gibson (drums) (born March 6, 1951 in Newcastle) upon Tyne) and Brian Johnson (songs). Their first single, Do not Do That, entered the British Top 40 in December 1972.
In March 1973, Geordie made his first album, Hope You Like It, under the label EMI. Trying to compete with British glam rock bands like Slade and Sweet (Geordie supports him during a UK tour as well as Slade during a concert at the Rainbow Club in London in March 1973), they return once in the British Top 10, with All Because of You (April 1973), and once in the British top 20 with Can You Do It (July 1973) and the band appears several times on the BBC channel including in the show Top of the Pops in November 1972>.
But their second album, Do not Be Fooled by the Name (1974), including a cover of House of the Rising Sun from the band The Animals, has not been successful. After their album Save the World released in 1976, frontman Brian Johnson left the group to embark on a solo project. The album, No Good Woman, was released in 1978. It is composed of three new tracks with Brian and new tracks recorded by Malcolm Vic with future keyboardist Dire Straits Alan Clark, singer Dave Ditchburn, bassist Frank Gibbon, and drummer George Defty. The album does not work, and the band splits quickly.
