About this album

Pablo Honey is the first studio album by English band Radiohead, first released in early . The album’s title comes from a Jerky Boys prank call skit in which the prank caller says, “Pablo, honey? Please come to Florida!” to his victim. This snippet is sampled by the band in the song “How Do You?”. The album includes the single “Creep”, Radiohead’s most well-known hit on mainstream radio. Pablo Honey peaked at #22 in the UK charts and went platinum there and in other countries.

After a long dormancy while the members attended university, the band On a Friday reconvened in the early 1990s, becoming fixtures on the local Oxford scene with a series of demo recordings and well attended live gigs, finally signing with EMI/Parlophone and changing their name to Radiohead. The band’s first official release, the Drill EP, was produced by their managers Chris Hufford and Bryce Edge, and sold poorly. For their debut album the band sought the production skills of Massachusetts-based Paul Kolderie and Sean Slade, responsible for Dinosaur Jr. and Buffalo Tom albums of which they were fans.

Several months in advance of the album, the band came out with their debut single “Creep”. According to bassist Colin Greenwood, “Creep” had been written by singer/rhythm guitarist Thom Yorke sometime in the late 1980s, while he was at Exeter University, and was shared with other members of the band, who were mostly very enthusiastic, citing the song as a reason to continue making music together.

    What a great album, I love every single track on it! If they would have splitted up after this album they still would be rememberd as a great band. And no, not only because of Creep.

    if they would have skipped this and released the bends as their debut, we would be missing out on literally nothing

    There's a few good songs on it. But it's pretty forgettable overall. Luckily everything they've done since has been gold.

    It's an okay album, but there are some gems in it. "You"," Blow Out", and, of course, "Creep" are great songs.

    I think Blow Out is the best song overall and a bit underrated. [2]

    If this wasn't made by Radiohead it'd be some niche cult album loved by literally dozens.

    Album is full of great songs, sure it's not the same as the rest of their back-catalogue but hell it's still a good all around rock record.

    The kind of album I'd expect from Seattle and not from Oxfordshire. [3] Noobs here got to stop calling this album OK. It's bloody brilliant. It's just that you haven't really listened to this album a lot. Hipsters these days. :/
