Show Notes

Welcome to the 50th episode of "Music Is The Drug", and we're marking the occasion with Michael Timmins and Alan Anton discussing perhaps the Junkies' best known recording, "Sweet Jane", from "The Trinity Session".

A song that was in the repertoire as far back as "Whites Off Earth Now!!",  we look at the reasons why "Sweet Jane" and the Velvet Underground have always been Junkies' touchstones and hear just what songwriter Lou Reed thought of the band's recording of the song that takes us right back to the day he wrote it.
