The Scissor Girls were a noise-rock, experimental, no wave, punk trio from Chicago, Illinois.

In 1989 Youssefi met SueAnne Zollinger while attending the Art Institute of Chicago.
The Scissor Girls' live performances were highly theatrical and the group's members often dressed in bizarre homemade costumes ranging from Catholic schoolgirl uniforms, to clothes made of Bubble Wrap and duct tape. The group recorded and released a number of indie singles as well as two full-length albums with their original lineup before guitarist Sue Anne Zollinger chose to leave. The Scissor Girls formed in the summer of 1991 with Azita on bass, Zollinger on guitar, and Melowic on drums. The group was known for the odd costumes its members would wear on stage; an eclectic collection of attire which at times included, goggles, tutus, and heavy eye makeup that mimicked the black facial coloring of raccoons.
