Three D Radio announcer, Megan Cat (up until recently with her husband, the late Peter Brat) lives in "The BratHaus" a rural seaside home about 100km from Adelaide on South Australia's scenic Fleurieu Peninsula.
Veteran musician Peter, and artist/musician Megan, were long-time DJs on Three D Radio 93.7fm
, Adelaide's eclectic independent music station.
Together Peter & Megan, known as "The Cat and The Brat" created this blog to allow listeners to review the playlists of their radio show, "Technicolour Dreaming" , watch clips of selected songs and simply join them in the enjoyment of their favourite music... psychedelia, 60's garage,
surf, punk/post-punk, pop, folk-rock, glam, 'Krautrock', goth, 80's electro... and much more!
But The Cat is carrying on the tradition, with guest co-presenters, and "Technicolour Dreaming" will continue in the same format, drawing from the huge "Cat & Brat" music collection, with the addition of new releases and reissues to keep things current. The Brat is hugely missed, but the show must go on, as he wanted...

Obscured By... Oct 11 2011

You want obscurities?  OK - we have rarely heard "mod beat garagepunk" tracks from Singapore, Israel, Lebanon and beyond.  We have The Fantastic Leslie  featuring a future Chaser member, and a second version of the rare-enough-as-is Freshwater track 'Satan' - re-recorded with strings and brass.  We have a Hans Poulsen track so rare, no details can be found.  We have a Marty Rhone anti-conscription song buried on one of his B-sides.  Obscure enough so far?  Plus other US, UK and Australian tracks you probably won't hear on other shows.  Plus a collection taken at random from the various "O" sections of the Three D library.  And... well, take a look below for the rest.  All lovingly curated by this week's host, Michael Hunter.
