The primary vocalist Belinda De Bruyn is uncredited. Here is her comment, posted on a blog that recently uploaded the track to Youtube:

"Hello, I actually know the full story on this track since I was the lead singer of this band and recorded the vocals you are hearing. The song was indeed our only commercially released track. Gaby Lang was the girlfriend of our manager (Rose Windels / ARS) in those days. When the record was recorded, mixed and released, my name was replaced by Gaby’s who merely did some backing vocals. I was young, unexperienced and very angry and deceived. We even did some photoshoot wrapped in plastic bin bags, me lying on a table like some sacrifice, which was supposed to be the artwork. The band members were Georges De Decker (keys) still active in avant-garde electronic music), Dries D’Haese (bass), Luc Duerinck (guitar) and no longer with us, Dirk …. (forgot his last name) but also passed away. Anyway, glad you like our music from way back then…. my name is Belinda de Bruyn"

De Breuyn's name is also referenced on the vinyl folder of the 2019 STROOM release:

Would love to mention that the song isn't actually 3:09. It's about 6:00. Same run time as the video listed for this page. For a while i thought the video listed on youtube was some extended mix that hasn't been posted on discogs yet but it's just an error on the printing. Beautiful record, vocals are amazing, snares and deep.
