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: Phoenix
Genre: Poppity

Voting ends on: Monday, July 26th, 9:00am CST (GMT-5)

THE VERDICT (Updated!)

Voting has ended.

Here is the tally:
Front Left: 2 votes
All Black: 1 vote

Front Left is in charge! Now, if I could just get "Lisztomania" out of my damned head.

Oh, I get it! Phoenix rises from ashes in symbol of rebirth. French pop (sorry, poppity) band names itself after legendary flammable bird and emerges from cemetery fully alive (alas, not as zombies) to provide its song for a Cadillac ad. I love when French people lay on the symbolism with a shovel.

Since these aren't subtle Frenchmen, I'll have to figure they put their leader up front. Front left is in charge.

All-black has the in-charge wardrobe, but it looks like he just got his hand slapped with a ruler. Of course he's looking at the person doing the slapping - the leader, mr.frontleft.

(there's probably a patton-montgomery-degaulle joke to be made here, but i can't quite put it together.)

Patton, Montgomery, and DeGaulle walk into a bar. Patton slaps Montgomery's hand with a ruler. Montgomery orders a martini and demands a duel.

DeGaulle surrenders.

The one with his coat buttoned. It's always the best dressed fellow. He's cracking his knuckles, getting ready to beat the next one who gets out of line again.

P.S. good one, Jared X.
