Omar Rodriguez-Lopez Talks About Relationship Of Command

Former At The Drive-In and current The Mars Volta guitarist Omar Rodriguez-Lopez recently spoke to Alternative Press about ATDI's breakthrough and final album, Relationship of Command. In the current issue (AP 266), Rodriguez-Lopez discusses recording with Ross Robinson, being on Grand Royal and, of course, the demise of the band shortly after the album's release. Read an excerpt from the interview as well as click on the link to the full interview after the jump. Also, if you do not already own Relationship of Command, you should probably buy it, period.

On getting Iggy Pop to record "Rolodex Propaganda":

"He had been talking to Iggy because they were gonna work together. I don’t know if they ever did, but they’d sort of been chatting, so Ross had passed him our previous records and he liked them. So, of course I brought up the idea, “Why not [have Iggy] come and do something on the album?” Ross mentioned it to Iggy, and he was completely open to it."
