In 1978, then-16-year-old Akron native Rachel Sweet embarked on a tour of England alongside Wreckless Eric, Lene Lovich, and others. As she was merely a solo artist, a newly-formed group called the Records served as her de facto backing band.  After supporting Sweet, the Records (including guitarist Huw Gower) went on to release their debut album for Virgin Records in 1979.

On this episode of the Lost Labels Podcast, we speak to Huw Gower about the early years of the Records, including their time as Rachel Sweet's band, as well as his later career (including a stint with David Johansen of the New York Dolls). Today, Huw Gower is a member of Icecream Skyscraper, whose most recent album was released in 2015.
