Sigur Rós

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.

The guy on the far left looks like he's got them all under control.

band members can't be in charge if they're:

1) asleep in the photo,
2) fascinated by lichen, or
3) overshadowed by everyone else.

so it's the guy on the left.

Hatless, lichen is very fascinating. Put on a Sigur Ros album and stare at a lichen-covered rock for a bit. It'll blow your mind.

But that does not, per se, put the lichen starer in charge. He's just the muse for the band's sound. Look at second from left. He's lurking in the shadows with an evil expression that'd be perfect to lead this "Dreamy" operation. He might even have a hand on far left's back, controlling him like the dreamy puppet he is.

My vote is with second from left.

Word verification: scrati (Icelandic for dreamy)

hmmm, you have a point. for all i know "sigur ros" is the icelandic term for "lichen starer"...

I'm going with the big hat man. He seems to be most leaderly.

Lichen. Definitely Lichen. Or his evil twin.
