CD NEW AND SEALED

After signing to EMI in 1991, Radiohead released their debut single “Creep” in 1992. It became a worldwide hit after the release of their debut album, Pablo Honey (1993). Their popularity and critical standing rose in the UK with the release of their second album, The Bends (1995). Radiohead’s third album, OK Computer (1997), brought them international fame; noted for its complex production and themes of modern alienation, it is acclaimed as a landmark record of the Generation X era. Kid A (2000) marked a dramatic change in style, incorporating influences from electronic music, jazz, classical music and krautrock. Though Kid A divided listeners, it later attracted wide acclaim. It was followed by Amnesiac (2001), recorded in the same sessions.

Hail to the Thief (2003), with lyrics inspired by the War on Terror, was Radiohead’s final album for EMI. Their subsequent releases have pioneered alternative release platforms such as pay-what-you-want and BitTorrent; Radiohead self-released their seventh album, In Rainbows (2007), as a download for which customers could set their own price, to critical and chart success. Their eighth album, The King of Limbs (2011), an exploration of rhythm, was developed using extensive looping and sampling. A Moon Shaped Pool (2016) prominently featured Jonny Greenwood’s orchestral arrangements. Yorke, Jonny Greenwood, Selway, and O’Brien have released solo albums.

As of 2011, Radiohead have sold more than 30 million albums worldwide. Their awards include six Grammy Awards and four Ivor Novello Awards. They have achieved seven top 10 hits on the UK Singles Chart: “Creep” (1992), “Street Spirit (Fade Out)” (1996), “Paranoid Android” (1997), “Karma Police” (1998), “No Surprises” (1998), “Pyramid Song” (2001) and “There There” (2003). They have also achieved two top 40 hits on the US Billboard Hot 100. Rolling Stone named Radiohead one of the 100 greatest artists of all time, and Rolling Stone readers voted them the second-best artist of the 2000s. Five Radiohead albums have been included in Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Albums of All Time lists, and the band are the most nominated act in Mercury Prize history, with five nominations. They were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2019.

Pablo Honey

  1. From Cukturalmente: La storia dei Radiohead inizia nel 1988, quando il cantante Thom Yorke e il bassista Colin Greenwood, che facevano parte del gruppo punk dei Tnt, decidono di formare una nuovo gruppo con Ed O’ Brien, chitarrista, Philip Selway, batterista e Johnny Greenwood, polistrumentista. I cinque ragazzi decidono di chiamarsi On a Friday, perché ogni venerdì si incontrano per le prove.

    Tutti sono infatti impegnati negli studi universitari. Thom studia inglese; Colin frequenta la facoltà di letteratura inglese a Cambridge; Ed economia all’Università di Manchester e Phil storia al Politecnico di Liverpool. Nel 1991 incidono il primo demo che contiene quattro tracce: I Can’t, Nothing Touches Me, Thinking About You e Phillipa Chicken. La Emi decide di offrire alla band un contratto.

    Due mesi dopo, gli On a Friday cambieranno nome e diventeranno i Radiohead, da un brano dei Talking Heads incluso nell’album True Stories. Secondo la leggenda è stato Keith Wozencroft della Emi a spingere il gruppo verso un cambio di nome dopo aver letto l’ennesima stroncatura della band sui giornali.

    La casa di produzione discografica stabilisce che la band dovrà registrare l’EP Drill, che contiene due nuove canzoni: Prove yourself e Stupir car oltre a due nuove versioni di You e Thinking about you. Ad eccezione di Stupid car, tutti i brani dell’EP sarebbero poi diventate tracce dell’album Pablo Honey.
    Drill non supera mai la posizione 101 nelle classifiche inglesi.
    I Radiohead si mettono a lavorare su una nuova canzone, la mitica Creep, che sarà il nuovo singolo. Il resto dell’album, a parte un paio di brani, viene registrato in sole tre settimane negli studi di Oxford e mixato a Boston.

  2. From BBC: Oxfordshire’s best-known musical export have been voicing the angst of an inarticulate generation for the last fifteen years, kicking off with Pablo Honey, their exploration of suburban, adolescent self-awareness. Released when the boys still glistened with the sheen of an expensive private education and set against the more mature redneck, white bread, blue-collar roar of Nirvana, Radiohead’s intelligent, delicate take on the loud/soft, quick/slow language of grunge appeared spineless and effete until Creep was released and set the record straight.

    Massively backed by UK ‘indie’ radio, the single became a hit in the slacker student community, and simultaneously established the band as serious musicians, with interesting points to make and hefty musical skills with which to drive them home.

    The band’s apparent overnight success came after years of dedication (even keeping in touch while away at various universities) and endless free time spent in rehearsal. They’d toughened up and tightened their sound on the road before setting out to make the album, and had grown the confidence to expand ideas across lengthy instrumental breaks that other new kids in the studio might fear to try.

    It all resulted in a stunning blend that combined the best aspects of prog rock (challenging lyrics, deft chord changes, novelty time signatures and so forth) with the plaintiveness of bedsit singer song-writing and the sound of expensive equipment thrashed at by experts. Though later albums were better received, this remains one of rock’s most impressive debuts.
