Our favorite dashing Dandy with the double last name is back. Courtney Taylor-Taylor, of the Dandy Warhols has hooked up with Germany’s One Model Nation and will release not just an album, Totalwerks Vol. 1 (1969 – 1977), but also a work of historical fiction, One Model Nation, a graphic novel set in Berlin in 1977, one of the city’s most turbulent periods of politics and culture.

Taylor warns, “It is merely inspired by the outrageous and outlandish behavior and style during this amazing time and place.” The hardcover, and album will be released on The End Records on January 31st, 2012. It features a foreword by Michael Allred (Madman, The Atomic, Red Rocket 7) and many “behind-the-scenes extras including sketches, storyboards, a detailed director’s commentary, deleted scenes and a fascinating historical background on the Baader-Meinhof gang.”

Hear the album’s single “East Berlin” here.
