V/A Anthems LP
An interesting compilation of international experimental bands who were asked to bring a version of their national anthem. Some of them are not the real ones. Spirocheta Pergoli brings a version of Liberia and 001011011100...Cancer one of Naon, although I never heard of that country.
Merzbow is quite different here than their usual noise assaults. Olho Seco is a Brazilian raw punk band and Prhemm brings a mix of the USA hymn and the URSS one. There was still a cold war going on.
The Trax label was run by Vittore Baroni, Piermario Ciani and Massimo Giacon and released besides a few records also some cassettes, audiomagazines and comics, but also organized exhibitions.
Another compilation album can be found on Mutant Sounds here.
PS: forgot to include a cover scan so I posted a larger one as usual.
