THE SWOON made a lot of noise.
In the late 1980s, a cacophonous noise shattered the peace of the great plains. A commotion of drums, guitars, and teenage angst came tumbling out of a Cottonwood, MN garage, staggered about, shook itself off, and called itself THE SWOON. A few short years later, the band vanished without a trace and the prairie hush resumed. This website collects the memories, revisits the noise, and writes the epitaph. If you want SWOON nostalgia or you just kinda like that end-of-the-eighties vibe, subscribe at the bottom of the page.
