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!

At the end of May I went to Barcelona to attend the Primavera Music Festival, it was a great experience with a crazy number of bands that played till 5 am for 3 nights.  The festival site was along the shore of the Mediterranean Sea, the weather was beautiful and the city itself is pretty amazing.  The highlight of the festival was the 3 hour set that The Cure did, but it was also good to find out about some bands that I didn't know about that I really enjoyed.

Best song I heard since the last show -  The Cure - Boys Don't Cry
See the classic video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l8CDERzun4k

  1. Cool music! I've played all podcasts from December 2012 back to June, simply adding the mp3 URL directly into Winamp, listening to them in the background while I work.
    You have an error in the mp3 link in this post, but I found the correct link in the rss. :)
    Before I found out the rss, I tried the May show, but noticed another error in the mp3 link (it links to April show). :)
    Please edit or remove this comment when you fix the links, since most of this won't make any sense then.
    Also, I'm a huge fan of Beach Fossils! Discovered them sometime in September I think. :)
