Being native New Yorkers, and deeply involved in the New York punk music scene, they soon found themselves performing at many of the East Village venues. They performed regularly at the infamous CBGB, singing back up with Blondie, and their own punk band, The Sic F*cks. Known and loved for their brilliantly-colored, cutting-edge hair, it wasn't long before they introduced the Manic Panic range. Tish and Snooky introduced their customers to rainbow hair colors and cosmetics to match. Soon they were distributing the hair color right out of the store. When their hair color business boomed, the boutique closed. (The NYC store's front and signage were featured prominently in a shot in the opening montage of Saturday Night Live's 1980-81 season).
