The original members were: David (Geordie) Garriock (lead vocal),
Ronnie Martin (lead gtr, vocal), Andy Bell (drums), Dave Bell (rhythm gtr,
vocal) and Pete Mason (bass gtr, vocal). The group went to France playing on
the american bases.
In July 1965 Dave Bell went back to England and was replaced by Mick
Rothwell on (lead gtr, vocal) and Howie Gee joined at the same time as an
extra lead singer.
In December 1965 Howie Gee left the group to join his girlfriend in Denmark.
Howie saw there was a big market for a group like Red Squares and called the
group in France and said, Come to Denmark, I have a lot of jobs for you, in
fact he had only one job for the group but was convinced they would be an
The band came to Denmark in January 1966 and within six months were the
biggest name in Denmark and breaking into Sweden.
There was total fan hysteria and in Sweden the fans totally wrecked a
Folkpark stage at one concert. The fans adored the two front figures of
Geordie and Ronnie.
In March of 1966, Andy Bell went back to England to be a journalist and
Howie Gee went back in the group as Drummer/Vocalist.
Just as Red Squares were making thier first record (Howie was on the two
biggest hits Sherry and People Get Ready) and just before a massive tour of
Sweden, Howie was thrown out of Denmark, because he had no work permit.
Andy Bell was asked to come back for a short while and then Mick Malony took
over the position of drummer.
Ronnie Martin, in September 1966 left the Red Squares and was replaced by
Stevie McGee (rhythm gtr, vocal) Ronnie for a short while sang with the
Beatmakers (Danish) Also Pete Mason left the group. Pete was replaced by
Dennis Hastings (bass, vocals) Stevie McGee left the group and was replaced
by Jahn Teigen (ex The Enemies). In 1969 December the group split up after a
tour of Isræl, and no chance of getting back to Denmark, because of work
Red Squares in the period of 1966-67 were the biggest idols on the Danish
Pop Scene. No other group could have the idol worship they received where
ever they went. Geordie was voted number two best in the world singer. The
group were always in the papers and front page news of magazines. The group
was inspired by American groups such as The Beach Boys, The Four Seasons,
also some the American black groups that were around at the time. The group
also wrote their own material. The Red Squares also inspired many Danish
groups ie: The Fourways, Freedoms, Burtons and The Money Makers.
On the tail of the Red Squares success came another English group. The
Wishful Thinking, they had a moderate success in Denmark.
In 1971 Geordie went to Sweden where he made four single records and an L.P.
in his own name. He came back to Denmark in 1975 and formed the group
The members were Geordie (lead vocal), Michael Rasmussen (lead gtr, vocal),
Helge Solberg (el bass, vocal), later replaced by Chris Poulsen (el bass
vocal), Mogens Christensen (rhythm gtr vocal), Gert Gunther (drums vocal)
replaced by Ola Juul later replaced by Paul Callaby (ex Shu Bi Dua). Squares
broke up in the winter of 1977-78.
In 1980 Geordie sang with local musicians and different bands and after his
divorce he gave up the life as a musician.
One day he received a telephone call from Howie Gee asking him if the Red
Squares could maybe reform, so after trying to get the old members to come
back, The Red Squares were eventually reformed with the following members:
Geordie (lead vocal), Howie Gee (drums, vocal), John "Farmer" Konrad (lead
gtr, vocal) later replaced by Johan Gerup (ex Dieters Lieder), Thyge
Driesler( keyboards, vocal) and Lars Gyldenkærne (el bass, vocal) replaced
by Chris Poulsen later by Søren Jørgensen and in 1996 by Marius Ignat.
The new Red Squares in 1989 quickly became popular again with a big hit from
the L.P. Back On The Road called Goodbye My Love. The group went back on the
road and appeared on T.V. Super Chancen, Hit Hærg og Hentehår, Apollo and
many local T.V. stations whilst on tour around Denmark.
Red Squares are still on the road and loving every
minute of it.
