My name is Richard Conning, known by most since the mid 70s as Rico. In 1975 I started a band called The Lines and between 1977 and 1982 we did a lot of recording. Then in 1982 I started working as a recording engineer, at the time out of poverty and desperation, but as it turned out I would have nothing to regret. This is a mostly chronological list of my engineering and production work, starting in 1983, when things began to get interesting. As we proceed into the 90s we will branch more into sound design and post production work. I will also re-examine releases by The Lines as well as keeping readers up to date on current projects.

2020 Update: Spotify players have been added where available. Every time you use them you are adding $0.001 the bursting and burgeoning accounts of these fine artists.

    Good morning Mister Conning, I do not know if you remember “les Spoutniks” on Myspace Music? You have always kindly listened to my little songs in the past and encouraged me. I have uploaded new tracks like “lumière blanche” , “modern guy” and “top model”. here the link. (I hope I do not bother with this.) I am curious to hear the new album of Turboust that you produced. https://myspace.com/valentineetlesspoutniks/music/songs

      Salût les Spoutniks! Je suis très content écouter encore vos chansons. J’aime bien les nouvelles, mais mon préféré, c’est toujours La Défense, Terminus. Super.
