What about 'Bring back my body to me...' ;-)

More seriously, and out of interest (well, to me anyway!) Swinton Folk Club was held for a short while at the Bulls Head in Swinton, Manchester, facing St Peters church. St Peters churchyard had been robbed a couple of times in the grim and distant past and a group of worthy locals decided to form a club to watch over the graveyard at night. It was in the very room we held the folk club and our residents at the time decided to give themselves the same name as those worthy gentlemen all those years ago - The Watchers!

The club had a wonderful atmosphere but, alas, it fell to progress and while the pub is now a plastic palace full of alcopop drinking youths the upstairs rooms are in ruin...

Ah well.

Cheers
