Out of Our Dens: The Richard and the Young Lions Story is a documentary
about a 'almost-was' band of the 1960's that decide to have another
go at success 30 years later.
the Young Lions had a regional hit called 'Open Up Your Door'
back in 1966 that only peaked at #99 for one week on the national
charts. A combination of bad luck, a complete overhaul of members,
and ineffective management caused a song that had the potential
to be great to waffle in mediocre-dom..
the band faded away.
later, 'Open Up Your Door' appeared on a garage-rock
box-set called 'Nuggets' and a series of coincidences
brought everyone in the band back together to give success another
go despite being in their 50's.
band found the familiar struggles, but eventually worked to put
together an album of new original songs.
album & documentary were completed, the lead singer 'Richard'
