Oh damn. I should have been more of a Kraftwerk fan back in early 2004 so I'd have bought tickets to their concert but noo. Oh well. :|

Currently listening to "The Mix"; the version of Autobahn sounds quite Christmassy lol, check 2:30 and you'll see what I mean. :wink:

Ah well, we probably won't hear any new material from them, anyway.

Seems like we won't hear any new material from Karl Bartos, either. Taken from his forum:

alexbrega: "5 Years since last album Communication,do you feel it's time for a new project ?"

Karl Bartos: "Time is moving fast, isn't it? Well, people don't buy records anymore and I can't afford to work for nothing. That's all.

Right now we're working on a new updated live show. People still go to concerts and that's fantstic!

Anyway, it's hard to understand that consumers are willing to pay € 5,- for cigarettes or € 10,- for a bottle of wine. A record with the equivalent of one or two years of work for € 10,- is considered too expensive... that's the way it is.

So, we perform – that's fine! "

I respect Kraftwerk and Karl Bartos for what they have done, but this sounds more like heavy whining to me :?

I dunno in what world he's been living - but now mine. I'll gladly pay €20 for a new Bartos album :robertdugenou:

And wouldn't even pay a hundred if I were addicted to cigarettes :smoke:

Dang that's really sad, both about Schneider and Bartos - I loved Communication! I went to one of his gigs at the Birmingham Academy... at most the audience was 100 big...

that is really sad.

Florian must have his reasons. But it is the End . :cry:

/.... Kraftwerk to be Boney M like band with only 1 original member.... ? well I don't know.

and he is absolutely right about record industry. so sad but true. Imgaine, you need instruments, time, a year or 2 or 5 ! to live with some money to produce art. and then you want to sell it and get something you can live a month or so.

something like this happened with Deep Brazil project. Eric Mouquet says he is happy that people are buying his album but he even didn't sell 1000 copies ! how should a musician live without other income or past success (case of Jarre or Cretu or Vangelis)?

I even think that Florian may have started some kind of business like for example restaurant or technologies (latest examples are Jarre and MC)

or art need suffering and difficulties to be produced?
