Description

2LP version with exclusive tracks! Chandra Oppenheim was a child star like no other. As the daughter of famed conceptual artist Dennis Oppenheim. By age nine, Chandra was staying up late at her parents’ art-world parties, collaborating in her father’s projects, and performing her own plays at downtown hotspots such as The Kitchen and Franklin Furnace.This set the stage for Chandra’s course-altering collaboration with
members of The Dance, who were looking to form yet another project and found their muse/fuse in 10-year-old Chandra. Transportation EP, originally released in 1980 by The Dance’s own label, ON/GoGo. Balancing on razorwire guitars, liquid basslines, and dub-style melodica, the Chandra band unveiled their first four songs: “Opposite”, “Concentration”, “Subways”, and “Kate.

While Chandra’s music can be compared to her no wave contemporaries Y Pants, France’s Lizzy Mercier Descloux, Su Tissue of Suburban Lawns, or “Delta 5 meets the Jackson 5”, to quote critic David Ma, her lyrical fixations are truly singular. With hypnotic, chanted vocals focusing on chilling themes of mind control, multiple personalities and missing the train.
