Here’s a pic from August 1999 showing Sean playing keys for NYC-based group Mantik.
Mantik’s main lineup included Scralet LeMay on vocals, Jimi K. Bones (KIX, Skin and Bones) on guitar, Yves Gerard (Patti Rothberg, Larry Mitchel) on drums.
Besides performing some of LeMay’s original songs they covered songs by Alice Cooper and Skeeter Davis.
Sean met LeMay through art and music events orchestrated by Aristedes DuVal. Later, drummer Gerard would perform with Sean on a couple dates for Sean’s band, Sean and the Time Travelers, including the show at Arlene Grocery in Manhattan.
