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!

December 10, 2010

I wanted to do one more show before my Christmas and Best Of podcasts, so I snuck this one in. Mostly a lot of leftovers that I wanted to get out of way before 2011. However the second set featured artists that played the Bowlie 2 festival in England, although it was far away and would have been expensive, it also would have been great. There is a link below that lists the bands that played, but the most important thing to know about the festival was that it was curated and starred Belle and Sebastian.

For those wanting a sneak peak into my best of shows this would be a good time to check out the Fireball XL5 website where everyday I'll be posting one more from my Best of 2010 Singles and Albums. If you can't remember to check the website then you can also get the updates from my Twitter and Facebook accounts.
