Our Local Editor recently admitted that 'Pablo Honey' is still her favourite of Radiohead's several albums, so we thought we'd mark that by listing the Chipping Norton recording studio - the studio where 'Pablo Honey' was recorded - as an Oxfordshire landmark so all you Radioheads can pay homage to possibly the greatest band to come out of Oxfordshire.

If Wikipedia has it right then the building is a Grade II listed building. Songs that were recorded at the studio include "Baker Street" by Gerry Rafferty, "In The Army Now" by Status Quo, "Too Shy" by Kajagoogoo, "Perfect" by Fairground Attraction, "Died in Your Arms" by Cutting Crew and "Bye, Bye, Baby" by the Bay City Rollers. Dexys Midnight Runners, Duran Duran, Marianne Faithfull, Wet Wet Wet, Jeff Beck, XTC, Barbara Dickson, Alison Moyet.
