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!

Fireball XL5 Setlist May 19, 2000

Before the show Michelle had many grand ideas for sets and with Garth
coming on I figured I wouldn't need to pick out any music. But as our
patio delivery occured on Friday afternoon (patio
update:www.civil.uwaterloo.ca/frseglen/patio.htm) Michelle didn't show up
until right at the end. And as Garth was just coming from work the only
CD he had was the one playing in his car - Arcwelder.

But the Arcwelder led into a set by fellow Minneapol band Husker Du and
its derivatives. Garth also picked out a lot from the new release section
of the library. In our first talking segment we discussed the difference
between a front end loader and a bulldozer, now that's good radio.

I'm leaving tomorrow for 2 weeks for a combination of conferences and
holiday time to Banff-Victoria-Vancouver, Michelle is coming out next week
for the holiday time in Vancouver. We will be visiting my family and our
friend Allison.

All I know about the next show is that it will be on June 9 after we get
back from out west.

(I had a suggestion to mark the Canadian songs on the setlist, I used (C)
but I don't know if I like that symbol)
