"Transportation is the story of Chandra Oppenheim, a 12 year-old girl who fronted an art-disco / post-punk outfit at the height of New Yorks adjective-punk scene in 1980. Showing considerable promise as a song writer by the age of 10, New York artist Dennis Oppenheim recruited local noisemakers The Model Citizens (who later became The Dance) and drummer Fred Maher (Material) to back his daughter Chandra in one of the most unique projects of the time. As Chandra penned her lyrics, the band composed abstract dance textures that gives the recording its unique and timeless sound: pulsing bass, resonant keyboards, and Chandras commanding voice. The original Transportation EP was released in 1980 on GoGo/On records, the bands own imprint. Cantor Records is proud to reissue the Transportation EP along with four unreleased tracks recorded by The Chandra Dimension (her touring band comprised entirely of teenagers) and packaged with a lovely 5"x7" booklet. Cantor Records is a new, Canadian label specializing in high-quality reissues of out-of-print recordings from the 60s, 70s and 80s. All reissues are packaged with historical liner notes and are done with full cooperation of the artists involved." - Cantor. Bound 68-page booklet loaded with detailed notes and rare photos.
