While having a chat with Green & Wood bass player Josh Anzano after the gig with Saviours at the Sonic Ballroom in Cologne (read the interview here), he told me that he also plays guitar in Titan. For those of you unfamiliar with this band: hailing from Brooklyn, NY, this awesome four piece features a jammed out, psychedelic sound with a strong Kraut Rock/early Progressive feeling.
