The Records were an English power pop band, best known for their work in the late 1970s. By fans of the genre, they are considered one of the most seminal British power pop acts of all time. As the All Music Guide notes, they are often referred to as "The British Big Star". They are best remembered for the hit single and cult favourite "Starry Eyes". Throughout the 70s and 80s, the only constant members of The Records were John Wicks, Will Birch and Phil Brown. Today, former members of The Records record and perform as solo artists.
