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...

Technicolour Dreaming

Ahhhh... the Cat and the Brat were reunited on the airwaves this week after an enforced bunch of solo shows (two heads are always better than one!) resulting in a musical melange ranging from the neo-psych stylings of Prince Rama to  Josephine XV’s riposte to Napoleon XIV. We played two distinct 60’s bands called Kaleidoscope from two different continents, 80’s Adelaide rockabilly legends the Milky Bar Kids, the Mexican garage riot of Los Explosivos and was that an ode to decapitation by Dutch band Groep 1850? We also featured an interview with Melbourne psych-poppers Go Go Sapien prior to their Adelaide shows, including ‘behind-the-scenes’ anecdotes about the limited-release film which accompanies their new album, an homage to classic Australian schlock-horror B-movies... very groovy indeed! And we bid farewell to DieselWitch Will Kill You as our ‘Album of the Month’...
