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: Wilco
Genre: Countryfied Sensitive-rock

The Verdict (UPDATED!)

Jin started off with a lovely poem about Vesty Bellbottom. Dguzman voted for sitting-on-the-floor dude.

I was worried Jeff Tweedy was going to stumble across this post and realize he wasn't in charge, but to his rescue came Beth, Barbara and Beckeye. I'm not sure if their votes were due to a careful interpretation of the photo, or their undying devotion to all things Tweedy.

We may never know. Still, the voters have spoken. Nasty 'stache is in charge.

Splotchy said...

jin, that was a wonderful minimalist poem you just wrote!

dguzman said...

I second Splotchy's emotion! beautiful poem, Jin.

I'm guessing sitting-on-the-floor dude. But they all look so friggin' non-descript it's hard to tell.

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Second from the right with the cheesy moustache, which he has thankfully since gotten rid of. Although some members of Wilco may argue that Jeff Tweedy only thinks he is in charge.

Beth said...

Tweedy — second from right, with the nasty 'stache. Just ask Billy Bragg.

BeckEye said...

See, I definitely would've had Tweedy sitting. How do some people get to be rock photographers? Sheesh.

Anyway, he's the one Barbara said.

That IS a nasty 'stache. Looks almost bad enough to be a clown/pervert guy. Better shave that thing, dude.
