Etta James was no doubt fixing them up something in the kitchen. Since the site of Chess Records has been designated an official Chicago landmark, and since home to the Willie Dixon Blues Heaven Foundation.
After a while a man languidly comes to the door. He leads us into a room with a desk and some mugs and t-shirts on display. It would stretch things to call it a gift shop.
We paid up. He led us upstairs to a room filled with stackable plastic chairs and sat us in front of a big television and put a well-worn VHS cassette into the video player. Looking around it was apparent we were in what was once the main recording studio of Chess. The video whirred into action and started to play a documentary called Sweet Home Chicago. It told of the blues, Chicago and Chess. It was probably made in the early 90s and was all right.
It set the scene. But it went on. And on. We had no idea when it would end. Maybe it was a full 90 minute feature film? After about an hour it finished and Kevin popped back.
It was, and the control room was indeed the other side of the glass, and at the back the two rooms were the audition and rehearsal rooms. How long did Chess use it? Kevin said right up until when Leonard Chess died. Can we have a look around? It was difficult to get much sense of what recording in that room was like. It was now simply a rectangular room, high ceiling, with flat walls, and an old piano in the corner. It was difficult. The control room contained a couple of ancient pieces of recording equipment.
One, bizarrely, was perched in a metal serving tray on top a wooden cross frame. Back Martha Reeves & The Vandellas - Black Magic (Vinyl Kevin was sat behind his desk. They need to be free to create. It was good to hear. Was quite sweary. But what were the chances of that? As we leave the buzzer goes. Kevin lets in a couple of fellas.

Me and Mrs Monkey popped in for a look on a lunch time and ended up eating catfish tenders, bourbon shrimp and having friendly locals offering us drinks. It did though make us think that it would be a good venue to see someone half-decent. He had a cool laid back soul-blues style about him. Neat playing: nothing too showy, no face twisting histrionics.
We stood at the bar with a beer and dug him. Not that we waited long for confirmation, it was him all right, as he soon climbed stage to hold court. It was a bit like that. We shake hands. For me anyway.
Back in the main part of the club Jimmy Johnson was sat by himself with a coffee. Jimmy turned out to be a lovely bloke and seemingly happy to chat to us. It was hardly the right time for him to mention that horrible incident, and he struck a very positive note instead. Except say if you say it, there might be some meaning behind it. Jimmy asked where we were from and so told him London and that we got married on Saturday. When a man of 82, married for nearly fifty years, offers you advice, you listen.
Next stop: Chess Records. Labels: buddy guychess recordschicagojimmy johnsonmonkey usa. Any band who name a song the same as I named my goldfish - Herbert Huncke - is all right with me.
They were good last night; hanging a poetic lyric on a resolutely ramshackle and wonky beat. You'll find more polish in QPR's trophy cabinet - which is how it should be. I was on record duty, and as it was a gig rather than club meant my role was that of human jukebox, albeit a slightly self-indulgent one.

On first play I was so bored it was a feat of endurance to last the course. For something so innocuous it was riling me. To pretend otherwise fools no one and frankly makes them look a bit desperate.
