Batztoutai with Material Gadgets, subtitled De-Composed Works 1985~86, is a double album by the Japanese noise musician Merzbow. It is a remixed reissue of the 1986 album Batztoutai with Memorial Gadgets with a bonus disc of loops recorded at the same time.[2]

The tracks "Semykyoku", "Anus Anvil Anxiety" and "Mortegage" from the original release are missing from this version. "Intermission" is a short excerpt of "Dahkini Disko" from the original. Full-length versions of "Anus Anvil Anxiety" and "Mortegage" were included in the Merzbox.

The material on Loop Panic Limited is primarily taken from the then-unreleased Agni Hotra. "Industrial Pollusion 2" is a version of "3 Types of Industrial Pollusion", included on the reissue of Antimonument. The album title might be a reference to the underground publisher Loompanics Unlimited.

The album has been repressed several times with several variations of the artwork/packaging. A Japanese edition was released in 2004 in a limited edition of 250 copies with new artwork.[3]

The track "Fireploof Enema 1" was used on Russell Haswell's track "Micromedley" on the Merzbow remix album Scumtron.
