Beautiful Lives: Manic Panic

Band Aids
It was through their gig at the Bouwerie Lane that Tish and Snooky met Blondie's Debbie Harry and Chris Stein. "I think one night, a friend brought Chris and Debbie to the show…and they saw us and said, why don't you come rehearse with us?" Not long after, the sisters joined the band, singing backup for a year in the mid-seventies. "In the early days, we put on more makeup than you can imagine!" Tish says. "I put opalescent powder on my lips—we mixed stuff up together to make things that really weren't sold."
