Five years later, I inexplicably started doing it again.

Sweat Lodge Info
The legendary hard rock band Sweat Lodge played gigs
in Iowa and the midwest from 1991-'97, attracting armies
of fans known as "sweat-heads" to writhing mosh pits.
I was the band's manager starting in 1995. The "murmur"
Web page, which I created to promote the band, has info
for Sweat Lodge fans including audio from a backstage
interview with vocalist Andrew Genous.
