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!

This year, The Pastels released their first album since 1997, this band was there during the start of the C86-twee movement back in the mid-80s.  Apart from the great song that I played from the album, I also have a link below to the great video that really has a great feel to it.  The rest of the show consisted of me trying to clear out a lot of music before the end of the year.

Best song I heard since the last show - The Pastels - Check My Heart - Here the song here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sjxYLFWxR6E
