    Takahe Collage is a brand new full length album from Merzbow 50 copies only for Europe (last of a 500 pressing for the World) in a DVDigipak. *NON-RETURNABLE. "There is no need to argue: Merzbow stands as the most important artist in noise music. The favorite moniker of Japanese Masami Akita appears on hundreds of albums. The name comes from German artist Kurt Schwitters famous work Merzbau, which he also called The Cathedral of Erotic Misery. Akita's choice reflects his fondness for junk art (through Schwitters collage method) and his fascination with ritualized eroticism, namely in the form of fetishism and bondage. All these elements constitute the Merzbow persona." -Allmusic *Tracklisting:1. Takahe Collage (32.27) 2. Tendenko (29.29) 3. Grand Owl Habitat (12.00)
