Issue 2 of Dum Ditty Dum, the zine that serializes a non-continuous history of rock. This time, the day under consideration is March 24, 1987. Topics include the outrageous mediocrity of top 40, Big Black vs. Death in June in the battle of fascist aesthetics, Mexican video pop, the cryptic resentments of late Genesis, and the Euro-modernist typography of Boogie Down Productions.
