From their origins in New York s Greenwich Village folk scene and their involvement in the Easy Rider soundtrack, to the lost years of constant drugging, endless touring and a final shot at redemption, The Holy Modal Rounders Bound To Lose recounts the unique forty-year history of these true American originals. With startling intimacy, the film also documents the band s arduous, amusing, and sometimes heartbreaking struggle to capitalize on their recent resurgence in popularity, culminating in an unpredictable 40th anniversary concert in Portland, Oregon.
As much the chronicle of an era as of a band, The Holy Modal Rounders Bound to Lose casts an affectionate eye on the kind of hedonism no one is meant to survive. Rollicking. Poignant. --The New York Times
Charged with alternating currents of affection, exuberance and ineffable melancholy Bound to Lose generates palpable dramatic tension. --Variety
