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

We were joined on Technicolour Dreaming this week by Isomer’s David Tonkin (and his daughter Lara... at age 7, possibly our youngest interviewee yet!) who came in to promote his latest project, the debut CD by Bordel Militaire, a collaboration with a couple of Melbourne experimental /electronic /noise /punk musicians plus a few guests, including Boyd Rice. As well as playing a few songs from the album, David also ‘guest-hosted’, so scattered through the show were songs by such diverse artists as Scott Walker and Les Baxter through to Sabbath Assembly and Areyfu. Of course we also featured our regular psychedelic content, beginning with the Beatles and followed by the likes of a classic single by Hearts & Flowers, an early Bee Gees number [featuring the late Robin Gibb] and a song from the Higher State’s new album, as well as a dash of punk from the Slimeballs and early DouglasP band Crisis, plus lots more before we concluded with the Lovetones, our current “Band of the Month”.
