ROUND 1: Peter VS Rozz
Gothic Rock founding father and clothing-adverse baritone, Peter Murphy of Bauhaus dominated Death Rock deity Rozz Williams, who’s ultimately defeated game plan was as complex and challenging as his poetry.
After initiating an avant garde off, which Murphy found irresistible, Williams lured Murphy into an existential panic! But just when Williams thought his plan had worked perfectly; Murphy jumped back into the fight like a rabid animal!
Feeding off the dark chaos Williams had unwittingly released within him, Murphy went mad contorting, laughing manically, and popping out of dark shadows with heavy under-lighting. This all made Rozz very tired and when he laid in bed of lilacs and sheets in his corner, Murphy delivered two surprise kicks!
The first landed on Williams chest, only to hurt Murphy’s foot, as Williams was wearing his bullet-proof vest. The next kick, however, was in the eye. (Murphy later claimed, “It was a slip” with a banshee smile, but Willaims claims “It was deliberately! It was deliberately!”)
Either way, the assault gave Murphy time to detonate a multiple flash with no chords attached, from which his heliophobic opponent fled the ring.
It was a great fight! Stay tuned forROUND 2: Siouxsie VS Nick

Question with 6 notes
yourfriendg00 asked: idk why but for some reason i always figured peter murphy would have a really good roundhouse kick, what do you think?
I agree. His long legs would give him a good kick radius, and he’s pretty wiry. There’s actually video of him carrying a woman across his shoulders. They said it was a dance performance, but I think we all know that he was actually dragging prey back to his lair.

I told you Peter Murphy needed his beauty sleep, but you just had to take it figuratively, didn’t you?
[Many animated gifs of (mostly) Peter Murphy, stalking around and stuck in corridors]
I love the old lady in the fifth gif tho, she’s all “Your cheekbones are so sharp, how long has it been since you’ve eaten, let Nan fix you a nice supper”
