Pincher’s first release, a split with hardcore outfit Me Not Me, contains their signature songs like “Woman’s Place Is In The Kitchen”, “Blockbuster” and “Not Alright” while the trademark concert favourites include “Raining Blood” by Slayer and “Step Down” by Sick Of It All.

The band continued playng successfull shows not only in Moscow, but also in Saint Petersburg, Krasnodar, Voljskiy, Lipetsk and other Russian cities, joining the legendary punk rock and hardcore russian and foreign bands.

Stockholm all female quartet APHRODITE would provide an early career stepping stone for musicians that subsequently came to the fore with the hard hitting DRAIN STH. The original lineup underwent many direction changes in both musical and image. Guitarist Flavia Canel and drummer Martina Axén have been together in many acts starting with Punk band LIVIN' SACRIFICE. As this act progressed the sound developed into more of a Hard Rock vein, consequently changing titles to APHRODITE in 1985. They had the song "Playing With Fire" featured on the compilation 'Sommarrock 85', followed up with an eponymous mini-album in 1986.
