I'm pretty sure most of those members are actually robots.

I'll go with Mister Whites Of The Eyes in front.

I'm going for the guy second from the left. His square head makes me think of Kryten from Red Dwarf, and everyone knows that the robots shall be our masters.

McGone said...

Dr. Tobias Funke, analrapist. Because he blue himself.

BeckEye said...

Wait. None of these guys are actually blue!

Photoshop is in charge.

I'll go with bald guy with earrings on the back left. It's either a gang of ice cream shop workers or the goon squad from the funny farm..."they're coming to take me away, ha ha"

Hatless in Hattiesburg said...

i'd like to say the printing ink salesman is in charge, for unloading all that surplus cyan to their photo-printing company. but my actual vote is for mr-whites-of-the-eyes.

Small man , third from left with 1970's American haircut.He's in charge .

This is the only ska band I've ever seen where no one is wearing a cool hat. Isn't someone supposed to lift their cool hat to the offbeat guitar rhythm during live shows? Maybe a few hat-wearing band members have quit in search of an opportunity to be ensconced in red or yellow light for a change.

Anyway, white-eyes (let's call him Yang) in the front center is countered by black-eyes (Yin) on the far left. But Yin is awesomely bald, giving him the ability to reflect more blue light on his fans. Darkness triumphs. Yin (far left) is in charge.

What is Keifer Sutherland's name when he's in 24, and continuously saving 'civilisation' et al ah Jack Bower (sp)! OF course. He is in charge, there he is on the back row, third from the left, admitedly he's been on a diet but I shall ignore all the obviousness on the front row and go for Jack.

Ariella said...

Oh White eyes! Defiantly!

Also that is a terrible name for a band!

Dealer Man said...

My vote must go to the photographer. Because only the leader of a group could get that many people to get their picture taken under such horrible lighting.

Blaniage said...

I'm going with 'ol White Eyes. He's the shortest, so he's going to have that all important Napolean complex, plus he looks like he's the only member of the band not nursing a hefty load of resentment having to dress up like a prison laundry bitch. If he doesn't get a shiv in the ribs, he will remain In Charge.

Dani said...

I'll vote white eye's motly 'cause he looks like my old boss who had controll issues.

A Jaded Girl said...

Im actually going to agree with jared x because the second to last sentence in his post reminded me of The Rocky Horror Picture Show(im obsessed with this movie). "Darkness has conqured Brad and Janet".

Awesomely Bald man you are in charge!
