Lodger bodged


DON'T expect Flashbacks, the new LP by The Lodger, to take up permanent residence in your collection.
Because the Leeds band's latest LP seems to hark back to the dying days of Britpop, when every Tom, Dick and Travis could make themselves at home in the charts.
This may be a little harsh on The Lodger, who have some delightful moments, such as the Wave Pictures outro to Flashbacks.
The problem is their music tends to keep itself to itself, and as a result, the album underwhelms.
