After years of playing in Cincinnati bands and touring with various bands as a sound man and guitar tech, Steve Schmoll decided to put his energy into the all-vinyl Northside record shop, Black Plastic.
Mardou is a young Cincinnati band that’s
made a name for itself as an energetic Post Punk quartet. Having played
their first show May of 2012, the members of Mardou have released their
debut offering of four songs, known as Cardigan EP.
Nestled between Black Plastic Records and
Styles of Essence, 4029 Hamilton Ave. is a modest building with a sign
reading, “Northside International Airport” adorning the storefront. The
name itself coupled with the chalkboard outside advertising tacos is
enough to pique the interest of passersby.
