We have migrated to a new server. As with every migration, some things might have been lost in translation (at least, that's my experience in software development). The main problem is logging in into the boards. These could be caused by several reasons:

- Your browser cache & cookies need to be cleared because we moved to a new server. If you get the error message whilst logging: "The submitted form was invalid. Try submitting again.", you need to clear your cache & cookies. You can find a "Delete cookies" option at the bottom of this page.

- There is also a chance that your password is not correctly converted to the new system. This is a known bug with migrating the system. The only solution is to request a new password, there's a link on the form that will send an email to you to create a new password.

"Bartos' latest album, ”Communication”, came out in 2003. In 2008 he wrote on his website that he will not make any new records: ”People don't buy records anymore, and I cannot afford to work for free”. He has come back from that. At the moment Bartos works on three new albums: ”I'm working on tracks that I have already written in the past, from 1977 while I was in Kraftwerk, that have never been released. Besides that there will be a re-release of 'Esperanto', an album he did with Lothar Manteuffel in 1993 as Elektric Music which features Andy McCluskey (O.M.D.) and Emil Schult, designer of many Kraftwerk sleeves and temporary guitarist and lyricist of the band. And there will be a record with all new material."

Sounds good. I'll buy his music, no doubt. Communication was great.

Saw him 2 weeks ago, live in Leiden, my home town. Was great, lots of Kraftwerk songs and some Communication songs. Not much from Esperanto, sadly, love that album.

Just digging out some old posts :D

On 22nd of November 2015 Karl Bartos played in 'Haus Leipzig' and I had the chance to join the concert. He played stuff from all his own records with focus on 'Off the Records' but also a Kraftwerk block, which was quite impressive.

While you get a perfect and unpersonal concert with Kraftwerk, you get an almost perfect but much more personel concert with Karl Bartos. He was so releaxed and had so much fun performing during his 90 minutes show.

He played the following tracks:

Nummern, Computerwelt, The Camera, Das Model, I’m The Massage, Reality, Trans Europa Express, Die Roboter, Atomium, Nachtfahrt, Musica Et Machina, Without A Trace Of Emotion, Liife, Computerliebe, Tour de France, Interview, 15 Minutes Of Fame, Neonlicht and TV as last track.

No concerts scheduled for now only a re release of his 'Communication' album, but no new tracks there.
