Ladies and gentlemen . . . One Model Nation! This radical Krautrock-style band first existed in the minds of Dandy Warhols frontman Courtney Taylor-Taylor and his friend, the actor Donovan Leitch. Inspired by the strange saga of the Baader-Meinhof Group and the guerrilla warfare waged by the Red Army Faction in Germany in the Seventies, the two created a fictional German band and the story of their embroilment in the movement. Written by Taylor-Taylor with illustrations by Jim Rugg (Street Angel), the graphic novel One Model Nation is being released concurrently with music by the "band." You can stream "Mission to Mars," a track by the fictional One Model Nation, below.
