Con-dom - The Eighth Pillar (LP, SFCR 0001, 1992)

And from the noise of John Cage to the noise of Con-dom, spanning thirty years of noise. "Con-Dom stands for Control-Domination, and is the one-man industrial noise band of Mike Dando. Con-Dom explores any kind of social tensions and control: political, religious, racial, with an acid, violent and uncompromising attitude. He is well-known in the industrial scene for his furious ravaging vocals and the devastating live performances, in which he turns into a real stage animal."
Con-dom started releasing materrial in the early eighties and has a whole bunch of cassettes to his name with loud electronic music an strong voice. This LP was released by the French Sounds For Consciousness Rape label and "is inspired by the life, writings and example of British author and "man of action" T. E. Lawrence - an enigmatic outsider who lived a tortured odyssey of physical and spiritual extremes in search of his own personal faith." There is a booklet to it, which I don't have.
