The page Half Man Half Biscuit: Show Appearances (Excluding Sessions) contains details of session tracks played out of context (e.g. as Festive Fifty entries). Information taken from The Peel Sessions (Garner, K., BBC Books 2007). Garner does not count live appearances as sessions, but these are listed after main 12.

Footnotes
  1. However, 'Paintball's Coming Home' famously made that year's Festive Fifty, on the occasion when Peel couldn't play it because he had forgotten the title.
  2. Again, 'Twenty-Four Hour Garage People' made that year's Festive Fifty.
  3. The Peel Sessions (p. 291) notes that there is some confusion over this recording date, as the band's diaries list 2002-07-24, 'live in one take on the same day as a Kershaw session'.
  4. 'Joy Division Oven Gloves' made the top ten in the first post-Peel Festive Fifty.
