While researching the soundtrack they credited Pursey, so learning that he helped the band translate lyrics off of the album “Répression” to English around that time I thought it was better to be safe and credit him then not. Not knowing much about him or Trust there was nothing in the memory banks to fall back on. With what I have learned it does seem like an odd pairing though.
