Pincet - all-female punk rock band in Armenia

Pincet is an all-female electropunk rock band based in Armenia. They recently opened a MySpace page for the band and have posted since a few good songs there. Love it.

Band members are Tsomak (guitar, lead vocals), Astghik Melkonyan (drums) and Jenya (keyboard). Tsomak is an artist, women rights activist, and known from a former punk rock band Incest which was an "original all-female Armenian punk rock band" formed in 2000 and active till 2004.

This is wonderful! I am sorry I am a year late in discovering them, but I am very glad I did. Are they still playing anywhere? Do you know, what does "Pincet" mean?
