La 1919

La 1919
Country
Italy
Profile
Founed in Milan in 1980 by Luciano Margorani and Pierro Chianura. Their sound is electronic-based, but still uses traditional rock instrumentation (electric and bass guitars with clarinets and saxophones on their later releases). The band uses keyboard effects and tape looping, with electronic drums, resulting in a sound that flirts with jazz, no-wave, post-punk and electronica, yet is remarkably progressive rock at its core.
