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!

August 19, 2011

This show was a special one as it highlighted bands that I saw last week at the Oya Festival in Oslo, Norway: http://www.oyafestivalen.com/pages/eng/1-news

I didn't get to play all of the bands that I saw but I think that this show gives a good flavour of the festival. I also tried to give you a feeling of what it was like to be there and point out some of the things they did well such as their environmental efforts.

I split the sets up into indie pop, Scandinavian bands, funky bands, and electro pop. There were some heavy metal and other harder bands but I didn't really actively watch any of those so they didn't make the show.

First song of the show (best song I heard since the last show):
Pulp - Common People (See the video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DqgXzPfAxjo )

You can download the latest show directly here:
