4.0 out of 5 stars Pillage pop, Depeche Mode and Xymox style Dec 5 2003
Format:Audio CD
I can think of two groups that might be called pillage rock/pop. One was the Time Lords, a.k.a. KLF, who shamelessly and irreverently sampled artists. The other was Kon Kan, whose approach was more proto-industrial pop/techno like Depeche Mode, Xymox, or the Smiths, with some songs sampled. I first heard a song of theirs at a record store in 1990, where it was an instore play,...and after being intrigued by the sampling of Nancy Sinatra, forgot about it for nearly ten years.
Depeche Mode sounding synths, then Expose-type keyboards set the standard for "Arts' In D Minor/Harry Houdini" Other times, I'm reminded of some weird fast-paced instrumental Harold Faltermeyer might do. When Kevin Wynne sings here, it does draw comparisons to Dave Gahan, Morrissey, or other such artists. When the female singers sing "I wanna be...just like Harry Houdini", it's done to the melody of Blondie's "The Tide Is High" where Debbie sang "I wanna be...the one who looks just like that." There is a 12" remix included as a bonus track.
"Bite The Bullet" is another industrial techno exercise, while the title track is sung by Barry Harris, who has a slightly deeper register that is more like Dave Gahan than Wynne. There is a strings-enhanced melody that reminds me of Johnny Hates Jazz's "Shattered Dreams.
"I Can't Answer That" has a funky bass synth and Expose-type synth with the R&B-style ladies singing the lyrics, the melody having a hard beat like Sting's "We'll Be Together."
"I Beg Your Pardon (I Never Promised You A Rose Garden)" is the most upbeat number here and starts out in a Depeche Mode manner. The parentheses indicates a sample of Lynn Anderson's song of the same name. The dancing keyboard instrumental really enhances the song. This too has a remix bonus track.

5.0 out of 5 stars Syntonic Dec 29 1999
Format:Audio CD
Hi there. No, I have not had the pleasure of listening to move to move, but I have had the pleasure of purchasing Syntonic, used, from the web. I am sure that several of you probably hate me for this, but you don't know what a struggle it's been, getting a hold of this CD! I remember back in the late '80s, I had a friend who turned me on to Kon Kan's music, namely, the song "Liberty", or, for the uninitiated, the first track off of Syntonic. All I remembered about it, was that It went something like :"Let me tell the story, the way it used to be..." and the chorus went: "Break these chains in the name of..Liberty! " Aw, man, I cannot explain the exceeding-joy that I experienced, when I saw it sitting in my mailbox, when I got back from work a few days ago. I have been listening to it nonstop-since. Especially, "Liberty". I agree with those of you who said that Syntonic shoud definitely be reissued. As a fan of Depeche Mode, Erasure, the Pet Shop Boys, etc. and last but not least: Kon Kan, I have got to admit, that Kon Kan's music, can hang with the best of the '80s-crowd, and that Move to Move will be my next purchase!

3.0 out of 5 stars Before Thunderpuss, There Was Kon Kan. Oct. 5 2002
Format:Audio CD
Before he teamed up with Chris Cox to form the DJ team Thunderpuss, Barry Harris was the frontman of the Canadian act Kon Kan. In 1989, they had a Top 20 hit "I Beg Your Pardon (I Never Promised You a Rose Garden)," which appears on the CD "Move to Move," a dance album full of tunes so catchy and hook-loaded, you forget how shallow the material sometimes is. Energetic beats, Roland-like synths, and danceable grooves abound. It doesn't suggest much in the way of originality when you sample (no, STEAL) the hook off Deborah Harry's "The Tide is High" on one of your songs, but this album overall succeeds in its mission: to create fun-dumb, mindless pop. There are better dance records than "Move to Move," but there are also twice as many that are worse.

4.0 out of 5 stars Flashback - Repor to the dance floor Dec 13 2000
Format:Audio CD
This entire CD is just a great experience, but the remix of "I Beg Your Pardon" brought back soooooooooo many memories for me. It is the only song that has ever just made me stop what I am doing when I am at a club and head to the dance floor. I had lost track of it over the years and recently heard it being played on a "One Hit Wonders Wednesday All Eighties" and I just got all pumped up listening to it. Thank God I found it - that song just brings back the most amazing sensations! If you like the synth heavy, and I do mean HEAVY, 80's music, you will love this CD, no doubt about it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Move to Move Still Moves ME! Aug. 9 2000
Format:Audio CD
This is a cool CD. I am a big fan of the song "IBeg Your Pardon", and "Puss N Boots", I pretty much grew up with that stuff. However, i thought there would be another song on this album, I'm not sure of the title but it kinda goes, "Oh,OH,Oh, Oh Baby, DO you wanna dance with me?, Oh, Oh, Oh,Oh, baby, Dance the night ? ", Anyways it is probably on the other Kon Kan CD. Other than that the whole CD is pretty catchy, definately 80's dance pop stuff. If you wanna break out the flashback vault, you should definately have this in your CD collection.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great example of 80's synth-pop Dec 20 2001
Format:Audio CD
If you enjoy the 80's music like I do, this is a must have. Kon Kan delivers synth-pop like it should be from the era that made some of us who we are today. Kon Kan has a unique sound that stands out from other synth-pop bands. Great dance songs are: "I Beg Your Pardon (I Never Promised You a Rose Garden)", "Bite the Bullet", "Glue & Fire", "I Can't Answer That", "Arts' in D Minor/Harry Houdini". There are also great slow love songs that happen to be my favorates; "Move to Move", and "Am I in Love".

Great synth pop dance music group here. Reminds me of super groups like information society or petshop boys very similar sounding. Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars One good song, the rest -- eh!
Kon Kan is best known for their one-hit single "I Never Promised You." This is a mediocre album otherwise, with all the 1980s cliches -- orchestra strikes, sampling,... Read more

I bought about 10 CD's and this was one that I liked. It has nice synth pop music, the lyrics are less appealing than the background music. Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars SYNTH-POP POWER>>>
For all fans of synth-pop, I think you'll enjoy this. If you ever clubbed on retro night, I'm sure you've heard "Arts in D Minor/Harry Houdini" somewhere along the line. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars These songs create a nostalgia in you..
I have no idea why such a group like konkan never became public. I get so many memories of yesteryears when I listen to some of their songs such as "am i in love". Read more
