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.
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: Turin Brakes
Genre: Folky Rock
Voting ends on: Monday, March 24th, 9:00am CST (GMT-6)
THE VERDICT (Updated!)
Voting has ended. Here is the tally.
Everyone / No One: 3 votes
Left: 11 votes
Right: 14 votes
Wall: 3 votes
There were enough votes for the wall that I felt it deserved a chance to win, and not just get rolled into the "Everyone / No One" category.
As far as the overall power dynamics of the photo, I was kind of thinking along the lines of The Imaginary Reviewer. The guy on the right looked like he was ready to fall out of the picture to me. Maybe the picture was shot with a fisheye lens and he was a little distorted. I don't know.
However, I wouldn't presume to have a handle on the power dynamics of this band using my powers of observation on this picture. I am often surprised by the verdict of posts on WICH, and am often convinced the majority rule was the right call, even when I didn't see the same leader when voting started.
So, congratulations to the dude on the right! You're in charge!
