Eugenie and The Dance wanted to do a project fronted by a child and Chandra was excited to record 4 song EP backed by one of her favorite bands, and to start playing in clubs like The Mudd Club and Danceteria while she was still a pre-teenager. She also started designing her own clothes, inspired by Eugenie Diserio's sense of fashion.
The 12 year old girl fronting a dance band went over well in the New York arts scene with the band playing regularly in the local New Wave/Dance clubs. They also toured the northeast USA extensively, doing double bills of Chandra and The Dance.
Chandra recorded a second unreleased EP with an all-kid band as 'The Chandra Dimension' that was shelved until 2008 when Cantor Records released of both EPs together in a single vinyl reissue with new material as a full album, Transportation, in a limited pressing of 500 copies.
She has gone on to do other work including music, art and performance art under her full name Chandra Oppenheim.
