Shut up you Fiery Furnaces!

The new David Cross album (entitled It's Not Funny and due in May from Sub Pop) is riddled with disses of music figures from Evanescence to Scott Stapp and Lee Greenwood. But it includes at least one rock tip, too: In the liners, right after the thank-yous, there's this note: "Also, check out the Fiery Furnaces' album, Gallowsbird's Bark. It's great." Nice props for the Oak Park natives.

Update: Our neighbors at Pitchfork have the dirt on "Chris Michaels", a track from the Furnaces' forthcoming full-length Blueberry Boat.
