Peter Murphy pulls out the cape for Twilight 3 cameo

Posted November 6th, 2009 by eric

It is both fitting and alarming that Peter Murphy of Bauhaus and solo fame will be making a cameo appearance in the third Twilight installment, Eclipse. If Stephenie Meyer co-opts Bauhaus as an influence and millions of tweens are introduced to the likes of “Stigmata Martyr” and “Bela Lugosi’s Dead”, thus creating a Hot Topic frenzy, it will be like a beam of pure sunlight flashed directly into the eyes of goths the world over. I imagine the members of Bauhaus themselves probably would not argue with the chunk of change that might accompany such publicity, but disaffected teens will have to find a new bag of tricks to show the establishment just how much it doesn’t care, as eyeliner and fishnets will invariably become the uniform of the masses.

Bella’s Twilight Father, Billy Burke, explains the cameo’s context to MTV News:
