On Friday, The String Cheese Incident officially released their latest single, “Boo Boo’s Pik-A-Nik”, from their SCI Sound Lab. SCI originally debuted the song on March 22nd, 2003 in Denver, but never got around to officially record the tune in a studio setting.
Keyboardist Kyle Hollingsworth shared his thoughts on the new release. He explained,
Many years ago, this song was originally written as a response to Ross Martin‘s (The Motet) song “Yogi’s Day Out.” — Recently our friend Greg Koch swung by the Lab to rip a guitar solo on “Boo Boo’s,” and I played the head on organ instead of piano, which definitely brings a different vibe to the song. You can look forward to more new Lab takes on unrecorded SCI classics in the future!
“Boo Boo’s Pik-A-Nik” marks The String Cheese Incident’s fourth standalone single release of the year, on the heels of February’s “Bhangra Saanj”, featuring experimental electronic fusion group Beats Antique; March’s “I Want You”, featuring The Infamous Stringdusters dobro master Andy Hall; and June’s “All We Got”, featuring vocalist Tony White.
The band notes that they’ve recently been having some fun in the SCI Sound Lab, playing older songs that they never officially recorded in a studio setting.
