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: Spiritualized
Genre: Indie
Website: http://www.spiritualized.com/

Voting ends on: Monday, February 8th, 9:00am CST (GMT-5)

THE VERDICT (Updated!)

Voting has ended. Here is the tally.

No One - 3 votes
Second From Left - 5 votes
Far Left - 1 vote

Congrats to Second From Left! You're in charge!


The Imaginary Reviewer said...

Wow, two bands in two weeks that I really like! This does make it very difficult, Splotchy.

I'm going for the second from the left bloke. His coat is undone, he's thrusting himself foward, and he's braving the elements like a true leader.

I'm going to go for far left, as the chin is lifted toward the horizons in looking ahead - and the buttons on her (his?) coat are shiny which shows dedication to ornamentation.

Hatless in Hattiesburg said...

it's tempting to vote by seniority for the far-right guy, but the imaginary reviewer is right: mr.forward is in charge.

p.s. doorguard and i thank you for counting last week's late vote ;)

Dealer Man said...

I actually had to think about this one for a bit. Then, like a lightning bolt, it hit me.

The weather man is in charge. He's the one that held back the brewing thunderstorm long enough for the photo shoot to happen under all that wonderful metal.

Word verification = bable. Isn't that what most of us do when voting?

The House of Representatives is voting today to extend from Feb. 17 to sometime in June the date on which all TV broadcasts will go from analog to digital.

So Spiritualized will get a reprieve during which it should seriously think about buying one of those converters and replacing that nest of outdated antennas.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is therefore in charge for the time being.

Wait, they're English?! Crap.

aha, this is one of the easier ones to call:
second from left!

Nobody and I do mean NOBODY tells 2nd from left to tuck his shirt in.

BeckEye said...

If not the CEO of Ray-Ban, I'll say the guy up front with the unruly hair is in charge.

A Jaded Girl said...

Bleh! I vote for the analog antennae(sp?). Im sick and have no true reason for this.

word verification: ingsts(makes a cool sound when ypu say it)
