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: Kraftwerk
Genre: Eurosynth Pop

The Verdict (UPDATED!)

Voting has ended! Here's the tally:

Bow Tie Daddy: 2 votes

The Floating Head: 3 votes

King Ooze: 1 vote

He may not have a body, but the head is in charge!

OMG, it's been forever since I heard this band's name! Despite my suspicion that this is in fact a picture of The Four Freshmen, I'm gonna guess... um... man, they all look alike! And very greasy-haired... oh, bottom left guy.

dguzman said...

I meant middle left guy--the only one with a bowtie.

The guy who afraid to show he doesn't have a torso.

timdrussell said...

I'm going with bowtie too. He has that James Bond look that makes him seem like the leader (I don't know what I'm talking about).

BeckEye said...

I'll go with the disembodied guy in front.

Damn, these are a creepy bunch of guys. Like a bunch of Max Headrooms come to life.

Barbara Bruederlin said...

I'm going with the front man for frontman.

Manx said...

The regal looking guy on the right.

Better put a plug in him, he's oozing some leadership.

The Idea Of Progress said...

Kraftwerk had two leaders that share responsibility: Florian Schneider and Ralf Hutter.

Just for clarity's sake.

Yes I did read the Flying Burrito Brothers post, too.
