Industrial rock meets radical politics in Courtney Taylor-Taylor's debut graphic novel

Courtney Taylor-Taylor on Words & Pictures

What happens when an industrial Krautrock band gets mixed up with the radical Red Army Faction in 1970's Berlin? Find out this Thursday morning on a special membership drive edition of Words & Pictures.

Joining us in the studio will be Courtney Taylor-Taylor, co-founder and frontman for protean Portland band The Dandy Warhols. Courtney has teamed with chamelonic artist Jim Rugg and actor-musician-historian Donovan Leitch to craft the new graphic novel One Model Nation, set in an alternative version of Berlin where the burgeoning era of glam, noise, and punk meets the explosive anarchy of the Baader-Meinhof gang.

As part of KBOO's winter membership drive, there will be limited copies of the One Model Nation hardcover available as thank-you gifts. Also available will be CDs of the companion One Model Nation album Totalwerks Vol. I.
