"In honor of the memory of the New York City MTA Strike of '05. Chandra's 1980 EP Transportation (On/Gogo) featured 10-year old lead singer Chandra Oppenheim, daughter of sculptor/visual artist Dennis Oppenheim. In '79 via her dad she met the band Model Citizens, and upon their breakup they decided to back her up and call the group Chandra. They met with fairly good response: Warhol interviewed them for his mag, they got good paying gigs at all the NYC hotspots, and apparently appeared performing on Captain Kangaroo. Fred Maher, drummer of many Lou Reed sessions, was in this band as well."
