A blue plaque on Kenion Street SD8913 : Kenion Street records the history of the building:

KENION ST
MUSIC BUILDING

CARGO STUDIOS First Floor 1977 to 1984
TRACTOR MUSIC Ground Floor 1977 to 1983
SUITE 16 STUDIOS Both Floors 1984 to 2001

From 1977 onwards this building saw an endless stream
of bands from Manchester, Liverpool and from all over
the British Isles, pass through its doorways as it
became the place for groups to record, and
to buy and hire their equipment.

Joy Division recorded here from 1978 onwards
and had their bass equipment custom built
on the ground floor.

The plaque was unveiled on 23rd September 2009.
