Phil Pirrone leads JJUUJJUU with a rotating cast of backing players. The Los Angeles psychedelic rock band recently released its debut album, "Zionic Mud." It's heavy on reverberated vocals, fuzzed-out guitar licks and intriguing song titles like "Italian Toothpaste."

JJUUJJUU stopped into the CPR Performance Studio before a show at Denver's Lost Lake. The band played two songs and Pirrone spoke with Bruce Trujillo about how he started playing music, the many collaborations on "Zionic Mud" and running the California music festival Desert Daze.
