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!

November 26, 2010

I never really know when to consider that an album has actually been released? Maybe I'm old school but I like to see the physical copies before I think of an album as being released. So although the new Knock, Knock, Ginger album "We're headed for a fall" is available from the
Dadmobile website: http://www.dadmobile.com/kkg/fall/ the physical CDs won't be available until sometime next year, thus in my mind it is a 2011 release.

But that doesn't take away from the fact that everybody should go to the site and download the
album for free and of course a little bit of monetary support to the band would also be cool (which can be done right on the website above).

I had my favourite song from the album narrowed down to two songs, in the end I picked "Safety in Letters", I'll leave the other one for another show. The rest of the first set was some newer indie pop followed by the second set where I went a bit retro with songs from The Magic Numbers, Sloan, and the Go-Betweens. The next two sets went from electo-pop to some funky old soul.

Websites I mentioned during the show
