Telephono is the first album from by the indie rock band Spoon. It was released on April 23, 1996, by Matador, then re-released in a two-disc package with the Soft Effects EP in 2006 by Merge Records.
"Idiot Driver" had previously appeared in an "alternate mix" form on the Peek-A-Boo Records November 1995 compilation album Bicycle Rodeo.
The album was produced by John Croslin, who had been one of the leaders of Austin's The Reivers, recording in Croslin's garage studio on a budget of $3,000. It drew mainly positive critical attention, and in particular many comparisons to the Pixies. The album sold only a few thousand copies, however.
