Barcelona's excellent archival label Domestica dip their knowledgeable toes into the dusty back catalogue of mid '80s West Yorkshire industrial troopers Son Of Sam on the first of several reissues. You'll probably know Son Of Sam for the group's massively futuristic sounding "Nature Makes A Mistake" which got a timely 12" pressing from Running Back in 2011. The Collapse Of Ancient Funk Vol 1 is a great introduction to their back catalogue, presenting a selection of tracks from The Collapse Of Ancient Funk (1984-85 A.D.) a super rare tape issued by Final Image back in 1985. This first volume focuses on the band's vocal tracks, with the sleazed out industrial disco of "Carnal Knowledge" setting a tone that doesn't relent as the five track release progresses. If you are a fan of CHBB, Charles Manier, Das Ding or early Cabaret Voltaire you should definitely investigate this.
