Kon Kan was a Canadian synthpop duo consisting of musicans Barry Harris (vocals, keyboard, guitar) and Kevin Wynne (vocals) formed in 1988 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Their debut album, 'Move to Move' (1989), produced the international hit single "I Beg Your Pardon (I Never Promised You a Rose Garden)" (also known as "I Beg Your Pardon"), which sampled pop country star Lynn Anderson's "Rose Garden". Their name is a parody of the Canadian content regulations (often referred to as "Can Con") that mandate that thirty per cent of songs played on commercial radio stations in Canada must be Canadian in origin.
