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: Blur
Genre: Pop

Voting ends on: Monday, June 29nd, 9:00am CST (GMT-5)

THE VERDICT (Updated!)

Voting has ended.

Where the hell has my professionalism gone? It's already freaking Tuesday. Okay, well since I was late, a late voter gets their vote counted. You're welcome.

What's the tally?

2nd From Left - 2 votes
Red - 1 vote
Far Left - 4 votes
Crossed Legs - 1 vote

Brooding guy on the left, you are the Über-Blur!

clearly these guys need to get a chihuahua.

2nd from left has done the least amount of meth. he's in charge.

wv:pasha There's nothing peaceful about this.

Red. The power color.

Hatless in Hattiesburg said...

first instinct was to vote for the "power color" too, but a closer look at his face dissuaded me. i think mr.intensity on the left is in charge, if only because he is more effective at frightening shady promoters into paying the band as promised.

Jay said...

The one on the left, he seems on a dfferent scale, and set apart.

Zelmarific said...

The guy on the far left, all black. They all have scars from his lashings on their backs.

Jared X said...

Far Left would appear to be the only one capable of leading his droogies into ultra-violence, per "A Clockwork Orange."

My vote is with him.

The Imaginary Reviewer said...

Argh! My knowledge of the band is being an incredible hindrance here even though I'm trying to block it out! Arggggh!

So, for that reason, I am voting on the basis of shoes. Second left has nicest footwear, so he gets my vote.

The Imaginary Reviewer said...

Oh, and Jared X: Have you seen the video to The Universal by Blur? Very apt.

TheOtherJennifer said...

I'll go with British Bonaduce on the right. Not because the red shirt/red hair power color combo, but because he is the only one NOT wearing brown shoes with black pants.

Jared X said...

IR, I hadn't seen the video for The Universal but I have now. I was going sheerly on the pubescent-Malcolm-McDowell leer. Obviously, I'm not the only one who noticed this man's skill in, well, leering like Malcom McDowell.

The video is excellent, btw.

2nd from the right is the leader. Like Einstein, he spends too much mental power on leading the group to worry about his wardrobe so the cleanest clothes on the floor work for a band photo.

Roses said...

I was going to say the guy on the left because of his "stand alone"ishness.
but then I noticed the second guy from the right... with his crossed legs!
Truly only the one in charge could stand AND cross legs at the same time!
