Rock legend David Bowie was so thrilled to meet his band-of-the- moment, Secret Machines, he broadcast the encounter on his official website last month (MAR06). The HEROES hitmaker is a huge fan of the US group - comprising BRANDON CURTIS, his brother BEN, and drummer JOSH GARZA - and begged them for an interview after hearing their latest album TEN SILVER DROPS. The podcast reveals how Bowie became hooked on the band as soon as he bought their 2004 debut album NOW HERE IS NOWHERE. Secret MAChines are currently performing in England.
