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!

1988 ... an enormous first title which gives them a startling to say the least smashing with entry a first planetary mega hit. MAS-TER-FUL !
1988 ... an 88 year which will undoubtedly remain as their best vintage. First year of existence and already 2 top hits on the clock. Sacred performance !
1989 ... the year 89 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 89 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 ... transition to the 1990s and return to an already more traditional musical mode. Unfortunately, they will never stick 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 90's 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 !
