Quote of the day: … from Tim Kerr of the Now Time Delegation (playing at Satyricon, 125 NW 6th Ave., Portland, Ore., 503-243-2380, 10 p.m., Tuesday, July 17)

“I grew up with two older brothers, and the radio was always on. The oldest was always listening to soul music — Archie Bell and the Drells, the Impressions, all that. That was the kind of music I wanted to do on this record. To me, soul music is honest, real, timeless and relevant. That’s why Black Flag, John Coltrane, Aaron Copland, Nick Drake and Sun Ra are all soul music to me. I’m almost embarrassed to say this, but it’s now basically become a fairly spiritual thing for me to do this stuff. It’s something that’s inside that’s real personal to me.”
