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!

The show started with an album that has been a long time coming, the last Acid House Kings album was way back in 2006 and although the band members have done various other projects, this was the first proper Acid House Kings release since then. The album is called Music Sounds Better With You and is filled with all the happy feel good indie pop that you would expect from them.

The rest of the show was a random selection of great music that I've come across in the last little while as well as an indie pop classic from Guided By Voices.

**podcast bonus - can you find my big mistake in the first talking bit? **
