History of Manic Panic!

It all began in 1977 when two N.Y.C. born sisters Tish and Snooky, at the time singers in the original Blondie lineup, added some extra ambition to their rock ‘n’ roll lifestyle. They gathered up some of their clothing designs and with a $500 loan from their mom, opened America’s very first punk-style boutique on NYC’s infamous St. Mark’s Place. Their Mom coined the name “MANIC PANIC”, as her two daughters rocked by night and became business proprietors by day. New York had never seen anything as cool as MANIC PANIC.

The store catered to the punk rock and alternative crowd with hipsters coming from all over the world to shop, see and be seen there.  The original MANIC PANIC boutique became an icon of “first generation punk” as is well documented in countless books on the subject as well as in rock videos like those of the Ramones and films honoring the genre like Downtown 81.

Tish and Snooky introduced their customers to MANIC PANIC hair dyes in every color of the rainbow with matching wild colors for lips, nails, and eyes. MANIC PANIC hair color and cosmetics’ popularity soared in the late 80’s and the sisters began distributing their line on a small scale right out of the little store.

In between running the MANIC PANIC empire and travelling, the sisters still manage to find time to perform. They continue to rock out with their punk band Sic F*cks reuniting for special occasions like the last nights of CBGB’s, Joey Ramone birthday bashes, and various animal charity events. Tish & Snooky also make frequent guest appearances accompanying greats like Robert Gordon, Ronnie Spector, Tony Visconti, and Patti Smith
