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...

 Just two ‘DOTS’ this week - the Cat and the Brat - but still the show explored place and time in the regular manner, ranging from 60’s Australian rarities by the Sect, Daisy Clover and the Others, through local examples of the worldwide impact of punk with Jab, the U-Bombs and Nuvo Bloc, right up to a slab of modern psychedelia from Munich band, Liquid Visions. Along the way we sampled the 80’s Spanish garage of Sex Museum, prog ‘supergroup’ Captain Beyond, some French psych weirdness from Docteur Legume et les Surfwerks and heard the Edgar Broughton Band attempt to exorcise American imperialism from the UK [which got them to #39 on the singles chart!) before witnessing die Sputniks’ surfbeat rising from under the boot of Soviet repression in 60’s East Germany, plus much more... Obscure? oh yeah!
