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!

October 19, 2012

Started out with a great song from Gold Motel that turns out be a song from a few years ago, I'm sad to have missed it when it first came out.  The set also featured a song by the Housemartins a band from a while ago that I should probably listen to more.  This was followed by a bit of stripped down set that all happened to feature female lead vocals.

Got a bit funky in the last set, started with a great group from Toronto who I was introduced to by seeing them perform outside of the Younge-Bloor subway station.  The last song of the set was close to my top song and I only found out about it randomly with someone I know watching a bad movie on Netflix, it was a bad movie, but it featured this great song so I guess that is something.

Best song I heard since the last show -   Gold Motel - Slow Emergency   - Listen to the song here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y4rjbj24R8c
