Rancid Aphrodisiac explores the possibilities of inaugurating a social psychoanalytic critique of musical media and the constitution of subjectivity. Mickey Vallee uses the emergence of 1950s Rock 'n' Roll to introduce a uniquely socio-musical Lacanian psychoanalytic model that explains the constitution of modern subjectivity and the inherent loss at the center of contemporary human experience, and how such an experience is encapsulated in musical culture. The result is a uniquely approachable and informative guide to Lacanian psychoanalysis and its applicability to music and a vital, fresh interpretation of music in this most crucial turning point in the history of popular music.
