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!

A song from 1987 that I have never heard of was my top song of the week, thanks to the Popcasting podcast ( http://popcastingpop.com/ ) for exposing it to me.

The second set was interesting as it mostly stemmed from a few of the openers that I have seen lately and really enjoyed, bands names Bleached and Hospitality.  Although I wasn't paying a great deal of attention to them when I saw them, I now wish I had as I have enjoyed listening to since seeing them.  Just goes to show you that you should always try and at least listen to the opening acts to see if you should get the venue early.  This is similar to what happened last year as I enjoyed the albums by both the Craft Spells and Veronica Falls more than the bands they opened for.

Best song I heard since the last show -  Apple Boutique - Love Resistance  - See the video here
