The Ghost Frequency

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.

I'll be obvious and say it's ol' Boom Box Crotch there in the front.

Or Grandmaster Flash. Because these are obviously his white suburban disciples for the 21st Century.

Please, someone cart this dumb band to Supercuts. Stat.

I'm gonna go with Guy Behind Boom Box Crotch. He looks like he's responsible for this tragic mess.

Man in Black sitting on the back of the sofa.He is the top guy.

Splotchy, you're obviously testing me. At some point in last week's anniversary extravaganza, I went on an extended zombie rant. Here you give me a photo with the guy in the foreground wearing a "Return of the Living Dead" T-shirt. Nice try. These guys aren't zombies. They're deathly pale because they're holed up in a basement hiding from zombies. The T shirt is ironic.

As for the leader of this zombie resistance cell, the stubby fellow on the far right has prime placement on the couch, is sitting near a bottle of wine, and seems to have brought a loaded turntable. Boom Box Crotch has no cassette in his boombox (a metaphor that can be taken in many directions, none toward the top). Everyone else is sitting next to a keyboard. DJ Stubs (far right) is in charge.

Black t-shirt guy with the smart pageboy haircut.

Just so there's no confusion, I'm talking about the black tee guy sitting on the couch.

I agree, it's crotchedy box boy, but only because he is the only one old enough to get tats and piercings.

Guy in the black shirt in the back...

i'll vote for the only one brave enough to allow some chroma into his wardrobe. mr. spotty yellow in the upper left.

(but i wouldn't be surprised if either their parents or the casio dealer were in charge.)

I believe the youf on the far right with sticky out arm is in charge, open posture and the way he is not in the conformist grouping of the other lads, plus having all that stuff sticking out of your head is kind of a status thing in some social groupings.
Far out on the right is in charge.

The Imaginary Reviewer said...

Far right sticky out arm guy. Dunno why, he just looks leadery, which is like leathery, but without the Keith Richards implications.

No, me neither.

What do you do after you've successfully convinced four impressionable twenty-somethings to get ridiculous haircuts and then pose for a publicity photo? You enjoy the rest of your beer, take your suitcase full of bet winnings, and catch the next train the hell out of Dodge. Baseball T has mysterious motivations, but is definitely In Charge.

I agree with FBB & go with sticky out arm guy. Almost went with Crotch Box but he loses points for those ballpoint pen drawn on while they were shitfaced last night tat.

I would also like to know if they were ghost-ly pale before they got the name or because of it.
