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!

February 18, 2011

Some great new indie pop, some free downloads, and a link to porn, all in a day's work at the Fireball XL5 podcast.

My top song of the week was a bonus song on a 7 inch single that came with the most recent Belle and Sebastian album when you bought it directly from Matodor Records (which I did not do). So I was surprised when I heard it and realized that it is as good or better then any song on the proper album. The name of the song is "Suicide Girl" and if you don't know what that refers to then I'll leave it to you to do an internet search or if you are not at work you can click on the second video for the song below and find out.

For the rest of the show I tried to get to the large amount of new music that I've accumulated since my last new show back in December. My highlight was the new song by Those Dancing Days who just seem to be getting better and better with each single, the real test will be their first album which comes out in March.

Websites I mentioned during the show
