Yup. THAT Karl Bartos. Ex-Kraftwerk.Two tracks on 7" vinyl.
You heard it here first.
Hopefully NOT stuff from "Communication", cos I’ve played that to death. I AM the message..
This will be in (almost) as much demand as the John Foxx vinyl with ES-48, so I’d advise you to get a subscription.
I missed out on the "The Normal" single a few issues back and I am still kicking myself..
This message was sent from my phone. Please excuse the brevity and any typos. Thanks

PRE-ORDER AT JPC
Following speculation last week when we unveiled the tracklisting for English Electric, we can confirm that "Kissing The Machine" is an update of the track I wrote and recorded with Karl Bartos of Kraftwerk.
The new version is completely re-worked by Paul and also features Claudia Brücken as the voice of the machine.
KARL BARTOS | OFF THE RECORD | 15.3.2013
Karl Bartos’ new album “OFF THE RECORD”, consisting of 12 brand new tracks will be released worldwide on March 15th, 2013 on Hamburg based label Bureau B.
See KarlBartos.Com for details.
I’m a big Bartos fan. He seems to have carried on in the grand Kraftwerk tradition, whereas Kraftwerk themselves have wandered off in a different direction.
I really liked his last album (Communication), there were some classic tracks on there (“The Message” springs to mind), although there was some drivel as well (what was that about returning some video tapes all about?).
Indeed, Communication was one of my influences around about the time of my second album “Evolution“..
Anyway – You’ve been told, and you have plenty of time to save your pennies up. Although why it couldn’t have been out in time for Christmas, I don’t know.. (Perhaps there’s a big TOUR coming up as well?)
