When Québec progressive rock band Lasting Weep disbanded in 1972 after a 4 year run they did so with some unfinished business, something founding member Jérôme Langlois would rectify almost 4 years later. While Lasting Weep never really managed to get off the ground in their search for recognition, Langlois would find some measure of artistic success with Maneige, a band which played an integral role on the local progressive scene. Just prior to disbanding Lasting Weep were working on an ambitious piece of music called "L'Albatros" (The Albatros) which was a musical suite based on the poem The Rime of The Ancient Mariner by Samuel Taylor Coleridge.
A prisoner escapes and kidnaps a woman with her he falls in love. He's involved in a bad business where politicians and underworld are leading the dance.He'll die like the albatross in Baudelaire's poem.
