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 bit of electro-pop, a bit of funk, and then a few older songs in the last set.  A special note for a song in that set, I don't know much about Freshwater Drum, but I got a cassette way back when when I was working on the University of Waterloo newspaper The Imprint.  The rest of the album is just OK, but man the song "Part of your Painting" is just one of the best songs out there.  Also in the last set I played Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, who I saw in Toronto recently in a show that truly rocked.

Best song I heard since the last show - Capital Cities - Safe and Sound - See the video here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rWZr2F0qohA
