rare original tape by LA 1919 (aka La 1919 Spontaneo) were a Milanese avant-progressive band that first started life in September 1980. Their sound is electronic-based, but still consists of traditional rock-band instruments, such as electric and bass guitar (with assistance by clarinets and saxophones on later releases). Mostly though, the band uses keyboard effects and tape looping, combined with a Frippian and Frithian guitar sound, supplied by Margorani (much more evident on their second and third releases), with overlying electronic drums, culminating in a unique sound that flirts with jazz, no-wave, post-punk and electronica, yet is remarkably progressive rock in its basic state.
The sound in the album is mostly temperate while still being temperamental. Warm and almost fast psychedelic blues (see Captain Beefheart), and dark, a bit mystic.
