The Magicians ...

Kon Kan is a Canadian group originally from Toronto and formed in 1988 by Barry Harris. An Atlantic Records employee on vacation in Toronto spotted the single "I beg your forgiveness" when he heard it at a local nightclub. He made several copies which he gave to surrounding stores and transmitted it to several radio stations back in New York. The single was rearranged and released by Atlantic Records in 1989 and returned directly to the Billbord Top 20. The album "Move to Move", recorded the same year, contained other interesting titles like "Harry Houdini" or "Move to Move". The group embarked on a tour of South America and Asia which was a real success. 2 other albums will be released, one in 1990 under the name of "Syntonic" and the other in 1993 under the name of "Vida!

Clips :

1988 ... an enormous first title which gives them a startling to say the least smashing with a first planetary mega hit directly. MAS-TER-FUL !

1988 ... an year 1988 which will undoubtedly remain as their best vintage. First year of existence and already 2 top hits on the clock. Mighty performance !

1989 ... the year 1989 starts almost on the same basis as the previous year. New top hit even if the level of it is still a notch below the previous one...

1989 ... a year 1989 that rhymes with change of sound. The group follows the trend of the moment and goes into House mode. A daring bet and especially a bet unfortunately lost because the group will drop out in the Charts and this in an irreversible way ...

1990 ... we thought the group left to smash everything but it is he who will be shattered at the dawn of the 90s. Incredible turnaround given the potential of the latter ...

1990 ... the transition to the 90s sees them attempting to return to an already more traditional musical mode. Unfortunately, they will never get back to the leading pack again ...

1990 ... and yet their titles are not without interest, far from it. But the public has already moved on, too bad ...

1990 ... a BIG year 1990 with a plethora of titles. But they may hold on and keep believing, it will not change the course of history unfortunately ...

1993 ... big air hole of 3 years and here they are again in 1993 in relative form. The sound is trendy but the inspiration is after all average. Not enough in any case to be able to calmly compete with the competition ...

1993 ... the last hit, and again in the 'small caliber' category. The adventure will still have been beautiful with 2 tops hits on the counter, that's already it !

1993 ... an adventure that will end with this title. All in a musical style that has absolutely nothing to do with everything they had proposed before. Nice snub history of ...
