3 of the songs would probably be about potatoes and the other about Napoleon Dynamite or Yellowstone.

I cant wait.

hey kids! get your greasy hands on that superman cover before it's gone!

In other Sufjan news, the dispute over the image of Superman on the cover of Illinois has been resolved, according to a post on label Asthmatic Kitty's website. The LP-release ceasing and desisting, for the record, was on the part of Asthmatic Kitty, and not the forcible doing of DC Comics. The first pressing will be allowed to be sold with the image, and subsequent pressings will have the image removed. Shit, we gotta get our hands on that first pressing!

Now, as he takes to the road to promote the album — complete with his backing band, the Illinoisemakers — he's already got his mind on a few other states. After all, he's still got 48 of them to go.

"I've been working on songs for Oregon and Rhode Island and New Jersey lately, just based on information I've read about their histories," Stevens laughs. "And I'm solicited all the time by people who are proud of where they're from. Texas seems to be a favorite. Everyone's always asking, 'What are you going to do about Texas?' Like it's a big problem or something. People are like, 'What are you going to do, Sufjan? Someone's got to do something about Texas.' Like I'm suddenly responsible for that whole new empire down there."



I really dont want to tell you where I got that information......

I hate you MTV

I love this album. I don't think the whole problem with the cover applied in the UK so my copy has the original artwork on it.

That should be GREAT! It's too bad he is playing the Canopy Club though.

I think HighDive is a better venue, although there was talk he was going to play Krannert.

Sufjan Stevens - Illinois

Have you guys heard Sufjan yet? If not, you better check it out!!! I'll warn you, there is heavy use of non-standard rock instrumentation, thus, leading to a very folky sound. But the end product is amazing. Songs like "Chicago" and , "The Man of Metropolis Steals our Hearts" are simply amazing. I didn't think that I would appreciate this type of music.

What are your thoughts on Sufjan?

It blew me away on first listen. I was expecting something more folk like since that was how a friend described him, but it was very misleading. When I described Illinois to a friend I said that if there were a movie about Illinois this would be the score. It has a very wide expansive sound. Some of my favorites are "John Wayne Gacy, jr." , "Decatur", "The Seer's Tower".
