Video: The Mark of Cain Perform First Time Live (Channel V, 18 April 2001)

2013 gig highlight #3: The Mark of Cain fill-in drummer Eli Green almost losing and then catching his drumstick mid-air! Best save ever!

It is hard to find a replacement for the hard-hitting drummer John Stanier (Battles, Tomahawk, Helmet) and when a 22-year-old is announced as the temporary replacement your expectations are reasonably low. However, the drummer from Adelaide’s Life Pilot showed he had the goods by not only learning a far portion of The Mark of Cain back catalogue in a short amount of time, but also by pulling it off live!

The gig was at The Hi-Fi in Melbourne on 15 March 2013 and The Mark of Cain rocked everyone of us in the audience with their showing of Songs of The Third & Fifth.

Naturally, they also played all their TMOC classics to warm the cockles of my heart.

Ha, cockle = mollusk… remember Ween’s The Mollusk? I love that song.
