Today, it’s been 20 years since Radiohead released their debut album Pablo Honey.
Time sure as hell flies. In 1992 Radiohead released their hit single Creep and a full length was much anticipated. On February 22nd, 1993 their debut album, produced by Paul Kolderie and Sean Slade, was finally in stores. NME (look!) reviewed the album Radiohead are ‘one of rock’s brightest hopes… one of those flawed but satisfying debuts that suggests Radiohead’s talents will really blossom later on’, with a 7 out of 10 rating.
I guess they were right. The band released many critically acclaimed albums after this one. Radiohead themselves basically ignore the album at their live shows. In 2008 the band played the album’s closing track Blow Out at the end of their In Rainbows tour in Tokyo.
And we would love to know… What’s your favourite track of the album?
