of Montreal

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: of Montreal
Genre: Indie

Voting ends on: Monday, March 2nd, 9:00am CST (GMT-5)

THE VERDICT (Updated!)

Voting has ended. Here is the tally.

Jon Lovitz - 3 votes
Cap'n Redlegs - 3 votes
The Woman - 1 vote
Grandma's Curtains - 3 votes

Mon dieu! A 3-way tie! Once again we must call upon the sitting Vice President of the United States.

"Wow, this is a tough one. A tough one. Yep. TOUGH one. Boy, howdy. Let me consult my... ah, here we go --- REPLY HAZY, ASK AGAIN LATER."

I'll say Jon Lovitz with the animal draped carelessly over his shoulder.

Because wearing fur makes a statement all right.

Jillian said...

I agree with the other Jennifer. That pencil-thin mustache is very authoritative. Jon Lovitz is in charge.

I'm going with the guy second from the right who seems to have made a suit out of his mum's drapes and is now hiding behind a band member because his mum has discovered his crime and is now on the warpath.

I've gotta go with the hand shaker in the brown jacket 2nd from the left.

He knew what time the photo was going to be taken and how long it was going to take to get his hair done. As the one in charge he told the others it was picture time, hair ready or not.

Dealer Man said...

Imaginary Reviewer, I think that curtain guy's mother caught him and was trying to pull him away when the shutter snapped.

i'm going with Capn' Redlegs.
they should've gone to

Whoa, there's a lot going on here.

First of all, the band is about to break up. You have a pretty tight unit among the three on the right, while Lovitz and David Hyde Pierce on the left are agreeing to form a new band, possibly called The Fops.

If the photo panned down, I bet Judd Nelson of the rose kimono and smoky eye is wearing bunny slippers. And the chick is definitely wearing leg warmers. Red pants is, well, wearing pants, and therefore in charge. But he's about to lose his rhythm section and what's left of his sanity.

neither of "the fops" are in charge, nor is rose kimono nelson. the remaining two could easily be the founding couple, and as they say "if momma ain' happy, ain' nobody happy". so once again, the woman's in charge.

Lou said...

Red pants guy with the sideburns is definately the one in charge.

First I thought it was Cap'n Redlegs. But no, It's Flowerporno.

If Cap'n Redlegs we boss, he wouldn't let Flowers dress all bunny-bunny and disrespecting his mummy, etc.
