Miming the famous Minutemen song "Bob Dylan wrote propaganda songs" this Italian label released this great compilation, with only Italian bands covering the music of the famous American punk band.
The result is quite astonishing. Free jazz mixed with a good dose of punk going towards different dimensions, the genius arrangements eventually finish a sincere and real tribute cd. 
Those bands nailed it, simply.
It came out with an A5 size b/w fanzine, each band has a page where you`ll find graphics, address, line up and info(all the relevant scans included here).
A great sampler for all the lovers of The Minutemen.
