about

Transportation is the time-traveling vehicle of Chandra Oppenheim, a 12-year-old fronting a hair-raising post-punk / mutant-disco outfit. The year was 1980, and the setting was Hell’s Kitchen, New York, at the anomalous intersection of art and music. As the daughter of eminent conceptual artist Dennis Oppenheim, Chandra showed considerable promise as a songwriter and performer from the age of 7. This inspired New York noisemakers The Model Citizens (later transforming into The Dance) to approach the young firestarter and become her backing band.

The original Transportation EP was released in 1980 by ON / GO GO Records, the band’s own imprint, and has since become a long-lost cult classic. Cantor Records and Rain Boots Records are proud to reissue the four-song EP with the addition of four unreleased songs by The Chandra Dimension (Chandra’s touring band comprised entirely of teenagers). Following a previous 2008 pressing, the perpetually out of print and highly sought after release is available on vinyl once again.

Chandra is also in the final phases of development on a brand new album and multi-media performance entitled A Slightly Better Idea. The first release from her newly launched imprint Rain Boots Records will premiere in early 2015, date and location TBA. For more info, visit aslightlybetteridea.com and rainbootsrecords.com
