My Kind Of Town: The History of Chicago House
Frank Broughton, i-D, April 1995
ITS 1981. Frankie Knuckles, a New York DJ relocated for the last four years in Chicago, is driving south through the outskirts of his adopted city to visit his God-daughter. He notices a sign in the window of a bar: WE PLAY HOUSE MUSIC. Bemused, he turns to his friend and asks "Now what is that all about?" She looks at the sign and tells him, "It means music like you play at the Warehouse."
