    (1956- )
    Birth name is Masami Akita
    Recorded '1930 (1998),' 'Aqua Necromancer (1998),' 'Doors Open At 8 AM (2000),' and the 'Merzbox (1997)'
    He is well-versed in the 'art' of bondage.
    His name comes from a German piece entitled 'Merzbau,' which was also known as 'The Cathedral of Erotic Misery.'
    A fifty (yes, FIFTY,) disc compilation entitled the 'Merzbox' was released, featuring all of his early material.
    One critic said of the Merzbox: 'The only person stupider than a person who listens to and writes about Merzbow's Merzbox is the one who reads about it.' (Yes, the writer of this resume both read the review and listened to the Merzbox).
    He began by releasing cassettes of himself.
    Unlike Masonna, his music at times is tonal and possesses a beat and rhythm.
    He grew up listening to psychedelic rock and was fascinated by feedback.
    His music is featured in Japanese porn and Dutch films.
