Determine a band's leader by analyzing a publicity photo.

A band's inclusion on this blog reflects neither an endorsement nor a criticism of its music. This post is merely intended as a spotlight on the inner political workings of a collection of individuals who are in the midst of a cooperative, creative endeavor.

The Process:
You, dear reader, please answer the question, "Who's in charge here?"

After sufficient discussion has taken place, a verdict can then be passed based on a majority vote.

Band: Brightwood
Genre: Indie(?)

The Verdict (UPDATED!)

It's unanimous! Puffin guy takes it. I guess nobody but me thought the guy on the left was quietly and sinisterly replicating himself (witness his double on the right). Still, I recognize that not all of the band has been replaced, and he won't have total power until everyone else is dead.

My choice: The guy who thinks he's not as cold as the others are.

He's the only one not wearing some sort of jacket which enables him to puff his chest up for the hotties.

I vote for the Puffin Guy.

agree w/manx. Puffin guy.

(the minute you complimented me on my ability to name names the muse left me. Thank god for manx. Great name.)

He's also the one with the lens flare over his shoulder, similar to Ira in the Yo La Tengo WICH. If there's a leader in this band, it's Puffin Guy.

I am still amazed a this brilliant concept and jealous I didn't think of it first. I'll have to catch up here with the pithy content.
