Whilst there might be some doubt as to the exact timing restrictions that were placed on what was allowed to be played on this landmark show, what is certain is that this is the 100th podcast that the wizards have released into the wild since those heady days of December 2012 when one song constituted a show.

To show just how far they have come, this centenary show features a whopping great 24 songs and a shedload of wizardy bantz to boot.


the songs have to be how long?

Many thanks to some of our online contributors: Balloon Man, Stevie Flaxen, Rockin’ Robot Forster, Nimrod X, Jack K, Connor Henricksen, Steve Tamburello, Dan Haywood, Richard J Turner, and The Cat & Drum Social (Distancing) Club who sent us song suggestions, some of which were exactly 1’40” (100 seconds = excellent), but most of which were simply top notch short songs (and therefore invalid according to KoE, but not according to C. Garbanzo) all of which can be found on our Twitter feed here: @trustthewizards.

We ignored all of them in any case, of course, and you can find what we actually played right here, and down there:

    I well remember the Sheffield Shite Core scene and can help Chorizo out by providing the full lyrics for Someone by the reclusive Redbrick Shithouse:

    Someone saw a miracle
    Someone saw a fake
    Someone’s feeling bitter
    Someone’s getting drunk

    Someone’s loving someone else
    Someone’s being shot
    Someone said that things change
    Someone said they don’t

    Somewhere someone’s saying things that make them want to cry
    Somewhere someone’s seeing things that make them want to lie

    Someone’s hearing voices
    Someone’s skin ain’t right
    Someone’s building bridges
    Someone’s selling God

    Someone’s gone the wrong way
    Someone’s wasting chances
    Someone’s put their hands up
    Someone stole your heart

    Someone lost their children
    Someone a joint
    Someone saw their judgement day
    Someone saw no hope

    Someone found religion
    Someone foots the bill
    Someone’s wearing flared jeans
    Someone flicked to kick

    Someone said the world stopped
    Someone said they loved me

    • Someone ROLLED a joint, I think, Quality lyrics nevertheless. Oh, what we would give to see the boys back on tour again (for the first time).

        Ah yes, the perils of growing old and trying to type lyrics on a phone. Thanks for the correction Kicker!
