Radiohead - Pablo Honey
Pablo Honey is the debut studio album by English rock band Radiohead, released on 22 February 1993 by Parlophone in the United Kingdom and by Capitol Records in the United States. The album was produced by Sean Slade and Paul Q. Kolderie, and was recorded at Chipping Norton Recording Studios, Oxfordshire, England – except "I Can't" and "Lurgee", produced by the band's manager Chris Hufford at Courtyard Studio in Oxfordshire – from September to November 1992. The album's title comes from a Jerky Boys prank call skit in which the prank caller says to his victim, "Pablo, honey? Please come to Florida!" This is sampled on the song "How Do You?" which is the third track on the album.
The album received a generally favourable reception from critics, but some criticized its grunge sound as derivative and found certain songs underdeveloped. The work is often held in a negative light in comparison to the band's subsequent studio albums, though some retrospectives are positive toward it. The album produced three charting singles, "Anyone Can Play Guitar", "Stop Whispering", and perhaps the band's most well-known hit on mainstream radio, "Creep". Pablo Honey peaked at #22 on the UK Albums Chart, and was certified platinum in the UK and other countries.
