Spittle Records present a definitive reissue of the long out-of-print first album from Italian experimental-rock band LA 1919, Ars srA, originally released in 1987 by ADN, the Italian Recommended Records branch. Ars srA was an early example of a long-distance collaboration album as result of a virtuosic exchange of tapes between the Milan-based duo and the legendary American guitarist Henry Kaiser and Canadian maverick sound artist John Oswald. The resulting music sounds like a perfect blend of '70s art-rock elements and '80s electronics. An eclectic mix of "Frith"-oriented guitars, cold synthetic sounds, and programmed drum machine beats. Some sort of sonic no-man's land where elements from the post-rock in opposition aesthetic meet the experimental side of new wave. The album includes a declared tribute to the Frith-Laswell-Maher seminal coalition, via a metronomic version of "Killing Time", the title track from Massacre's first album from 1981 (SPITTLE 067LP).

The LP comes with updated graphics and contents including unpublished pictures and various memorabilia; Includes CD with extra tracks.
