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...

We had the first three tracks by the same band under different names.  We had another sad goodbye, this time to Adam Yauch/MCA of the Beastie Boys.  There were rarities that perhaps deserved to be so but we played them anyway (Bucks Fizz, Norwood Boys etc.)  We had Buddy Holly with The Hollies recorded several decades apart, along with very rare psychedelia / pop from all over the place.  Along the way were The Damned covering Jefferson Airplane, and early 70s Japanese girl group Golden Half covering The Partridge Family.  We also had all three "dots": Cat, Brat, Michael Hunter.  The whole playlist is as follows, so you can marvel at its eccentricity!
