The One Model Nation album, Totalwerks Vol. 1: 1969-1977, was mostly created by Leitch, Jon Fell (who was the book's colorist) and Elliott Barnes, the Dandy Warhols' guitar technician and another of Taylor-Taylor's close friends. Fell inspired one of the characters in the book and Barnes was the model for the key figure Sebastian. Taylor-Taylor appears on one track, "Transmission." "I pretty much let them go and popped down to bang on bike frames and an antique iron chair," he says, "whenever I wasn't eating Donovan's vat of coq au vin and drinking old French wines."
