Sha Mo 3000 (軍鶏参千 Shamo sanzen?) is an album by Japanese noise musician Merzbow.[3] The title is a reference to shamo, a Japanese gamecock and Módulo 1000, a Brazilian psychedelic rock band. The label presented Masami Akita with some South American psychedelic LPs, which inspired the album, these included Não Fale Com Paredes by Módulo 1000, and Paêbirú by Lula Côrtes and Zé Ramalho.[4]

It is limited to 900 copies in a miniature gatefold sleeve. It was also available with a handmade boxset limited to 99 copies, it includes the standard edition of the CD, a bonus 3" CDr, a silkscreened hanging wall scroll, three printed cards, sticker and bookmark. Manufactured in Brazil.[4]
