!! OMG, white on white, translucent glass pipes: Bauhaus’ Peter Murphy pleads guilty to meth posession in hit-and-run, faces 3 years probation !!

Peter-Murphy.jpg
“Bela Lugosi’s Dead” and “Stigmata Martyr” are totes our jams round this time of year, and it makes us sad to think that former Bauhaus frontman, Peter Murphy has been “f*ckin’ with that Tina,” so-to-speak!
Murphy was caught after a hit-and-run on Saturday in Glendale, Calif. when he hit a Mercedes in his car and then fled the scene. When the cops finally caught him he either had props from a Breaking Bad set sale, or he had meth pipes on his person for real. After a hearing on Monday, he was sentenced to 3 years probation.
You know, Peter really should have known better! He should have followed Sky Ferreira‘s golden rules for getting arrested which are:

  1. Don’t flee the scene
  2. Opt for a designer substance
  3. Only rub on Saint Laurent models
  4. Pout at all times

Are you bummed that Peter won’t be joining Bauhaus on tour next month when they celebrate the 35th anniversary of the band? Will you be lighting a candle for Peter this Halloween?

!! OMG, through the fog: The Hidden Cameras’ “Gay Goth Scene” Video !!


The Hidden Cameras have just released their video for their first single off their upcoming new album, AGE.
“Gay Goth Scene” which sheds light of a parent’s narrow-minded perspective of their gay goth son, has been a part of the band’s live show since 2002, and they usually break it out around Halloween time! The track was recorded by Ohad Benchetrit (Broken Social Scene, Do Make Say Think) and was finally completed with the otherworldly vocals of iconic Canadian singer Mary Margaret O’Hara.
AGE will be released early 2014 via Outside Music, and DON’T WORRY, GOTH KIDS! IT GETS BETTER! As an adult you will still be paying straight handsome jocks money to kiss their feet, but it will totally be your choice and really fun this time!
