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!

April 29, 2011

A lot of new material this show with the first set consisting entirely of albums released in 2011, many of which will probably end up in my top 10 for the year. These included songs by The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, The Go! Team, Acid House Kings, Those Dancing Days, and Lykke Li. And I now know that I mis-interpreted the lyric in The Pains song, instead of "you look so hard in fishnets and leather" I thought it was "you look so hot ...", I like my version better.

After a set of some more rocking indie music I ended with a funky set, something I haven't done in a while. Sorry about the sound quality on the Archie Bell and the Drells song, but the I just loved the song too much not to play it.

Websites I mentioned during the show
