This week Fun Lovin' Criminal Huey Morgan meets the San Francisco alt and garage rock band Black Rebel Motorcycle Club as they release their 6th album 'Beat The Devil's Tattoo'.

Core members Peter Hayes and Robert Levon Been talk to Huey about breaking the floor at Leeds Town Hall, the revolving door of record labels, new drummer Raveonette Leah Shapiro and how, over the last nine years, they've dealt with the mantle as rock music's great hope.

Huey also spins his usual selection of unusual tunes - from latin to soul, hip hop, rap, punk and reggae that stem from his New York heritage or have inspired him as a musician.

He puts the needle on the record for a listener's special vinyl request in 'Vinyl Fetish' and invites Simon Green, the British musician and producer known as Bonobo in for a residency in 'Sharing Is Caring'. Fresh from releasing his fourth album, the lush 'Black Sands' on Ninja Tunes, Simon raids his personal record collection to share some of the special or rare cuts of his collection with the listeners.
