The Stranglers

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: The Stranglers
Genre: Pop

Voting ends on: Monday, January 5th, 9:00am CST (GMT-5)

THE VERDICT (Updated!)

Voting has ended. Here is the tally.

Frodo on the Right - 1 vote
Richard Kiel On The Left - 3 votes
Bill Murray in the Middle - 2 votes
The Floating Head - 1 vote

I'll admit I'm surprised by this vote. Jared X had me convinced of the leader with his detailed analysis. Regardless of his forceful argument, Richard Kiel got the most votes, and as a result is in charge!

They look like they just escaped from the prison van....I'm going to go with Frodo on the right as he has the most hair and looks the least stoned.

(see if i can post this correctly this time...)
I'm going to go with Richard Kiel there on the far left as the ultimate Strangler. As a former James Bond bad boy, he used to creep me out.

A Jaded Girl, if I may offer a hypothesis regarding your choice -- he *is* holding an inanimate object, while the others are not.

I'll take Bill-Murray-in-Stripes for a thousand, Splotchy.

Every profession has to maintain standards, and the strangler profession is no different. Proud, union-card-carrying stranglers know that you need to wear a trench coat, and only a trench coat, when choking the life out of an unsuspecting victim.

The zippered, epauletted thing Richard Kiel is wearing is completely substandard. Addle-brained guy on the right is wearing a leather jacket, which would be OK if someone figured out how to strangle people from a motorcycle. The Pete Townshend-looking guy on top appears to be wearing a pea jacket. A pea jacket won't scare anyone.

Guy in the middle, with the collar-up trench coat is wearing the uniform. He's in charge.

Happy New Year to all.

I'm gonna go with the floating head. He's the highest, and therefore the leader of this mess.

guy on the left is the most strangler-esque, and therefore in charge. it's probably the 'stache.

Why, Splotchy I believe your correct. Upon further examination of my choice I see the (alleged) beer bottle. Perhaps you have stumbled into my quirky subconcious?
