10,000 Maniacs

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: 10,000 Maniacs (post-Merchant)
Genre: Sens-o-tive

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

THE VERDICT (Updated!)

Voting has ended.

Here is the tally:
Bald Tan Shirt: 1 vote
White Hat: 1 vote
Graybeard: 2 votes

If it matters at all, I was pulling for you, Joe. But the partially-concealed bearded gentleman is in charge.

Obviously it's not Mary Ramsey, who is given that "She's not one of us, but she is WITH us" acknowledgment. So I have to go with the bald tan shirt in front who has no regard for composition or his bandmates.

And is that Adam West in the hat back there?

I was going to say Mary Ramsey, until I thought about it.

You know, this is just all wrong. I can't vote on this one.

Well, okay. I have to go with the white hat.

I was tempted to say that Natalie Merchant is still in charge, based on the fact that she convinced the surviving Maniacs to pick a new front lady that would cause no one to forget her.

But then I noticed that Graybeard, standing behind Baldie, is partially concealed. That trumps everything. The partially concealed, gray-bearded Maniac is in charge.

I say the beard. There is an omniscience.

Joe said...

All of these people are boring, therefore I am the leader of this band. I claim it for myself.
