Bile Sister with Chandra - Get It Out Of Your System

You think you walk through a timewarp... Back in 1980, twelve-year-old Chandra Oppenheim fronted a band of uptown post-punk types and released a 12" that would eventually become the sort of overlooked obscurity valued by crate-diggers. Cantor, a small Canadian label, would reissue the album in 2008, and the songs would be a source of inspiration to local musician Julie Reich. Bringing things full circle, her band Bile Sister backed Chandra in a joyful set celebrating a new re-issue of the album.

Pulling together the various parts of the show, here's one of Reich's own songs (from last year's FRUITS comp), a Chandra tune that had previously worked its way into Bile Sister's live sets, and one from the set-capping collaboration. Word is that Chandra is getting some new music ready for the world, and I've also heard rumblings that there was a proper video capture of this show, so keep an eye out for that.
