Lodger were a British indie rock supergroup containing members of Powder, Supergrass, and Delicatessen. They released three singles and an album in 1998 before the members went on to different projects.

History[edit]

The band was formed in 1997 by Supergrass drummer Danny Goffey and his girlfriend Pearl Lowe, the former vocalist with Powder.[1] The line-up was completed by co-vocalist Neil Carlill and guitarist Will Foster, both of Delicatessen.[1][2] Lowe and Carlill's dual vocals drew comparisons with Nancy Sinatra and Lee Hazlewood.[1][2] They signed to Island Records and their début single "I'm Leaving" reached number 40 on the UK Singles Chart.[3] Two further singles, "Always Round Here" and "Small Change", prior to the band's only album, Walk in the Park (August 1998).[1]
