KON KAN

kon kanEsta banda de synthpop originaria de Toronto, Canadá, se forma en torno a Kevin Wynne (vocalista) y Barry Harris (vocalista, guitarra y teclados). El nombre de la banda no es más que la parodia a la frase CAN(adian) CON(tent) o dicho de otra manera “De contenido canadiense” y es que según las leyes de Canadá toda estación radial de ese país debe al menos pasar el 30% de música originaria de alla.

El duó firma contrato con Atlantic a finales de los 80’s editando los sencillos “I Beg your Pardon ( I Never Promised You a Rose Garden)” el cual sampleaba temas de Cheryl Lynn, Spagna y Silver Convention, ([CAN #19] [U.S. #15] [UK #5][D #8] [NL #3]), “Arts in D Minor/Harry Houdini” ([CAN #39] [UK #88]) y “Puss ‘n Boots/These Boots (are Made for Walking)” ([CAN #61] [U.S. #58]) que sampleaba el tema “Immigrants Song” de Led Zepppelin y “These Boots are Made for Walking” de Nancy Sinatra, además de su álbum debut “Move to Move” (1989).

kon kan1Sin embargo después de la edición el cuarto sencillo, el que le da nombre al álbum “Move to Move” (1989) [CAN #84], Wynne se aleja del duo dejando a Harris sólo, quién compone su segunda produccón “Syntonc” (1990); del cual se editan 3 sencillos pero de poca repercusión: “Liberty” (CAN #91), “Could’ve Said I Told You So” (CAN #72) y  “Better Day “.

Finalmente, Harris edita en el sello Hypnotic, un último disco en 1993 “Vida…!” que pasó sin pena ni gloria antes de formar parte de projectos como Outta Control o Thunderpuss al lado de DJ Chris Cox, produciendo y remezclando temas dance a principios del 2000.
