West Grove, Pennsylvania rock band Dr. Dog has written a song just for the Phillie Phanatic. Aptly titled “The Phanatic Song,” it debuted last night on XPN, when the Phanatic was doing a guest spot during host Dan Reed’s Top 5 at 5 spot.
Dr. Dog welcomed the Phillie Phanatic onstage as part of their encore during their 2014 Headline Tour February 1, 2014 at the Electric Factory in Philadelphia, PA.
The phenomenally popular rock band Dr. Dog, one of the area’s most successful musical exports, has a new album out — and, so we can’t be accused of burying the lead — it’s streaming right now at RollingStone.com.
The new record, B-Room, was recorded in the band’s Clifton Heights recording studio, also named B-Room. Its construction was, if not a labor of love, certainly laborious.
“We spent pretty much our whole recording budget at Home Depot,” the band’s Scott McMicken told the Inquirer in June. Talking to Rolling Stone, bandmate Toby Leaman said: “This was a straight-up construction project.”
