A friend of mine bought it and i find it impossible to get any sort
of sensible overview on it, mainly because of the cost (£550).
I think it's a pretty crazy object and worth it for humour value
alone. You have to be mad to buy and it and listen to it. Saying that
i like a lot of the early tape stuff. The last 35 CD's are tough
Also, makes for a good conversation piece whenever you are stuck for
something to say to the nice girl or (boy) standing next to you at
your next experimental concert e.g. "I bought the Merzbow thing".
Never fails to get an incredulous response.
Also, the packaging. Nice trashy fetish stuff that you would find in
a tourist shop in Amsterdam. Skimpy cheapo cd case and crappy labels.
