Lodger is a name used by several bands and musicians:
The most prominent is this entry:
1) Lodger is a Finnish indie band, formed by Teemu Merilä in 2002. Although largely unknown outside of Finland, they have established a cult-following on the internet due to the popularity of their flash music videos. Their first video "Doorsteps" and all their subsequent are designed by the bands lyricist Hannes Häyhä.
Their big break-through was with the internationally known flash-video 'I Love Death' which was later followed by the videos 'God Has Rejected The Western World' and '24h Candy Machine'.
Their first album, Hi-Fi High Lights Down Low, is rarely found in record-stores but can be bought over the internet at www.stupido.fi, also check amazon marketplace.
Their second album, How Vulgar, received lukewarm critical and fan response – but don't let that stop you from listening. The tracks "Friends" and "Brunswick Centre" are among their best.
Their third and latest album, Honeymoon Is Over, is, to paraphrase Merilä, what How Vulgar should have been. Much of the music has a harsher tone than their previous work.
In 2007 there was a small tour of America and there may have been a trip to the UK also in 2007.
2) Lodger was also a late 1990s indie 'supergroup' composed of Danny Goffey (Supergrass), Pearl Lowe (Powder), Neil Carlill (Delicatessen), and Will Foster (also Delicatessen). The band released one album, A Walk in the Park, in 1998.
3) Lodger may also refer to a music collagist, DJ and singer in Austin, Texas, who has also recorded under the names David Lodger, David Lodger's Hallucination (DLH), Thr33 Record Set, Supressed Laughter and Ziggy. He was a founding member of the underground, early 80's, Houston-based garage band Dead Eddie.
