Drum & Bass pioneer Goldie will be appearing at Beijing's Yugong Yishan this coming Saturday.
In a related incident, The Peking Order has heard reports that one of the individuals handing out flyers for the event has been masquerading as the Drum and Bass legend himself. The young man, who bears little resemblance to the British DJ (pictured below), has capitalised on the fact the majority of Chinese have never heard of Goldie and think that all foreigners look alike. The drunken opportunist even accepted requests to sign the flyers.
The unscrupulous character in question is none other than yours truly. There was talk of me attending a dinner with Goldie and promoters, The Syndicate. How could I ever face the "Original B-Boy" now?
"Dimeless", perhaps. Which brings me to another piece of news - I am skint. The small pile of money on my table - about 1000 RMB - is all I have left in the world. I have emailed BARE job applications but my inbox still remains BARE; it seems that I have no choice but to grin and BEAR this period of austerity.
Also, I have yet to get the Internet at my 'yard - promised prolific blogging awaits broadband connection.
