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.

Obviously, it's the tractor driver front and center.

(Although, I think the band members would be wise to do whatever the woman on the far right would tell them to do. Her square head frightens me.)

The picture in taken in front of a large tree in a very large field. Since you would need permission to picture a large group in someone else's field (or get chased off with a shotgun)

Easiest way to get permission is to have the property owner lead the band. Therefore the farmer front and center in the baseball cap is the leader.

i'm too damn tired to think of a snarky response. the guy in front is the only one with a hat. he's in charge and that's that.

(i do concur on the frighteningness of the square headed woman. the square object/building behind her head certainly does not help!)

Is that one of those backboards behind her square head? what IS that? This looks like a gang of farm workers whose truck broke down en route to the nearest organic farm. And red hat guy is scooping them up to take to HIS farm (wink wink).

Red Hat Guy is in charge.

This band should be named "Lambchop and the Midgets". Mr. Livin' Large (front and center) is in charge.

I thought Shari Lewis was in charge of Lambchop. But since neither she nor her puppet is in the picture...

The whole thing reminds me of the '80s flick "Red Dawn." Red cap in the middle is Swayze. The lady with the backboard behind her head could be Lea Thompson or Jennifer Grey (it really doesn't matter). The others standing are the other Wolverines. The seated five are Russians/Cubans who are about to be summarily executed by the dead tree on the bleak, wintery landscape.

Swayze is ALWAYS in charge.

the in-chargey-ness of mr. front-n-center is so strong, i can't even give a pity vote to anyone else in the pic.

The Imaginary Reviewer said...

Has to be Front and Centre guy, or, as Beckeye would say, Kurt. Fucking. Wagner.

(Sorry, bit of a Lambchop fan here)

SO many to choose from, I choose standing man, third from left, his crotch appears to be resting on seated persons head, ah the poetry, he is in chanrge.

Happy bunch aren't they.
