Of course I named the show after the great album by the Smittens and I pay homage to the band by using a clip of their song 11:11 for my theme. I hope the band doesn't mind, but when I have talked to various members of the band after shows they seem like nice people whom I think would be good with it.

I also use this name for my DJ night happening occasionally at the Jane Bond in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada.

Note that the links to shows older than 6 months might not be working, if you really want those shows please send me an email and I can get them to you. (Note that prior to 2018 I called my podcast FireballXL5, so don't be confused if you look at an old setlist)

Special thanks to Jeff Woods for finding my a place to host my mp3s!

** 1st Aniversary Edition of the Fireball XL5 Setlist - wow I've been
putting together this crappy newsletter for an entire year, note to self:
find something better to do with life **

The "misheard lyric" version of Fireball XL5 went pretty well with lots of
input from you guys, if you want to look up other lyrics check out the
website: www.kissthisguy.com . We also had the "South Park" film
soundtrack (of which only a few songs can be played during the day), and
new albums from The Flaming Lips, Lucious Jackson, and Cibo Matto.

I don't really have a theme for this week's show, but as the Hillside
Festival is coming up on the weekend we will do a spotlight on that. As
it is the 30th anniversary of the Moon Landing I was going to play a set
of songs about the moon. If you have any suggestions about moon songs
send them along (but just to me not the whole group).
