“Camera” by Karl Bartos

Today is National Camera Day. I can’t think of a more perfect song to mark the occasion.

You may remember Karl Bartos from his work with the band Kraftwerk. This track comes from Karl’s 2005 solo album Communication. The entire album is freaking great. You can really hear how he must have influenced Kraftwerk and vice versa.

It’s hard to get a physical copy because it was released in Germany, UK, and Japan only, in limited numbers. Sometimes the CD is listed for $60 or more on auction sites. I have the UK version on CD.

If you have been just using your phone for taking snapshots, why not dig out that old digital camera and take some higher quality photographs today. You can share them with us on Twitter or Discord.

What do you think of Karl Bartos as a soloist? What are your thoughts on departure from the band in 1990? Let us know in the comments!
