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!

March 2, 2001

I know I was a little nervous about the Inner city Surfers coming on the show last week, I downloaded a few of their songs and they were a bit heavier than I was expecting. For some reason I had visions in my head of Hell Angel's pulling up to the station, but it turns out they were just a couple of white suburban kids being punk rockers. They were articulate and friendly and left after half and hour, overall it went as well as could be expected. They were playing that night at the Bombshelter opening for former local band Paintbox (featuring Greg Hood-Morris for you Imprint alums).

I also finally got to play a few leftovers from the kiss set, including some of Kenton's suggestions. I also had a set of CDs that I was listening to in my office, Michelle doesn't get to listen to CDs in her office. Here's a good setlist question:

1) Are you allowed to listen to music during work
2) Do you?

I was also hoping to have started distributing the official "Fireball XL5 Best of 2000" CD by the time I wrote this. Although I'm close the first CD is still a few days off. But I WILL be distributing them before the next setlist so if you don't think I have your mailing address please e-mail it to me (not for KW people of course).

The next show (March 16) is of course the day before St. Patrick's Day, not really my favourite celebration, lining up all day, people drinking green beer, not really my scene (Of course I'll probably find myself at the Jane Bond on Saturday night watching Bernard in his band the Wagon Wheels anyway). So if you want to send along your favourite Irish themed selections it would be appreciated.

See the current Survivor Contest standing, right now Michelle is looking hard to beat:
