It was on the “French & Saunders” TV show that the unlikely duo Raw Sex was born. As Dawn and Jennifer’s house band Simon Brint and Rowland Rivron played father and son Ken and Duane Bishop with Ken (Brint) on keyboards and the slobby, often drunken Duane (Rivron) on bongos. During their time on the show the duo performed skits as Abba and The Pet Shop Boys but it was as the shambolic Ken And Duane that they are most affectionately remembered. The act developed as an act in its own right outside French & Saunders and such was their popularity they even made a feature film “There’s No Business” (1994) which has become a cult comedy classic. In recent years Rowland and Simon became members of the Idiot Bastard Band performing live shows alongside Adrian Edmondson, Phill Jupitus and Neil Innes.

With extracts and highlights form their career Rowland, discusses this absurd, hugely influential and brilliant double act in conversation with comedian and writer Robin Ince.
