Manic Panic is a line of cosmetic hair coloring, based in New York and owned by sister musicians Tish and Eileen "Snooky" Bellomo.[1] After starting their performing career as backup vocalists for Blondie from 1974 to 1975, they formed their own punk band, The Sic Fucks.[citation needed] They opened and operated the original Manic Panic boutique in Manhattan from 1977 until its closure in 1999, when the business was relocated to Long Island City. Both sisters continue to play music as members of supergroup Blue Coupe alongside original members of Blue Öyster Cult and original Alice Cooper bassist Dennis Dunaway.[citation needed]
