Snap Scene: The Mark of Cain, The Corner – 26th October 2019

The Mark Of Cain (also known as TMOC) are a hardcore, alternative band from Adelaide, South Australia. Their style has been likened to that of Helmet and Rollins Band, yet TMOC pre-dates both groups and was heavily influenced by the early work of Joy Division, Big Black and other US hardcore groups.

The Mark Of Cain were formed in mid-1984 by brothers, John (guitar) and Kim Scott (bass guitar), and over their 35 years of existence have had 14 different drummers. The current line-up features legendary US hardcore drummer John Stanier (ex-Helmet, Tomahawk & Battles) who worked with them on their last two albums, and tours with them occasionally. When Stanier is unable to join the band in Australia, Eli Green fills the drum stool for live performances on tour. Eli is an Adelaide based drummer who plays in Life Pilot and Julia Henning’s band.
