Bagpipe Cyber Rock! (Folk / Medieval / Goth)

Very interesting bagpipe rockers from Belarus:

See them in action here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p0Tz83oFxYI

They play on the German bagpipes.

(We note there is an Austrian heavy metal band of the same name - Yuk!)

It should be noted that the first tune in the video is macedonian (although not played properly), the second one is from Albania.
Both these tunes (in these incorrect versions) are pretty much standard repertoire among "medieval" bands in Germany.

"Uilleann Pipes Go Punk Rock!"

What inspires me is the audacity of it all.
I had a vision, something like a newspaper headline:

"Uilleann Pipes Go Punk Rock!"

Techno, even?

Add groovy female vocals and what have you got?

My imagination!
