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...

As always, we launched into Obscured by... with a bunch of Australian bands from the 60’s and early 70’s, this week including the pop-psych sounds of Puppy, an obscurity from the Groop, a live TV appearance by Kahvas Jute and classic garage punk from the Missing Links, and eventually bookended the show by finishing with some recent exponents of that ‘wild garage sound’... first from the USA, with Ty Segall and Thee Oh Sees, and then from Russia, with the Crushers. In between, we heard some goth from Christian Death, US punk from the Avengers, Krautrock from Faust, a pertinent classic from John Cooper Clarke, a strange electro set from Adelaide combo voiceROM, an interesting cover of a Velvet Underground standard by OMD, a 1976 live rehearsal recording from 801 and much more... even David Essex!
