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...

Another sad farewell this week, this time to Australian rock stalwart Darryl Cotton who passed away a few days previously.  A number of related rarities from a few of his musical endeavours were therefore found and played to start the show.  Another lesser known death was that of Geoff Ratz, bass player with 60s Melbourne band The Pink Finks, best known for introducing Ross Wilson & Ross Hannaford (Daddy Cool) to the world.   Other material included some "new" Joey Ramone, 60s European pop with The Golden Earrings and Jacques Dutronc, 80s Irish post punk and all the other styles and locales listed below.  Not many performance videos could be found for this week's collection - brought to you by all three "dots" - but they should still be of interest, eg the clip of Zoot's "The Freak" contains stills from their cruise ship reformation performance in 2011.

Technicolour Dreaming

Beginning with a 60’s classic has become a regular feature of the show and this week’s choice was the 1967 debut single by UK band Traffic, which we felt melded quite nicely with the Brian Jonestown Massacre’s eastern-tinged instrumental that followed. In fact we played a fair number of songs from “the original psychedelic era”, as Lenny Kaye named it on the Nuggets LP back in 1972... amongst them was the title-track of Donovan’s 7th album which featured the Jeff Beck Group, the flip-side of the sole UK single by Normie Rowe’s backing-band, the Playboys, on Immediate Records, as well as a track from the “lost” LP by Gary Walker & the Rain – a 1968 ‘Japan-only’ release which just recently became available in the rest of the world. It was also the last appearance of Brian Eno as our ‘Artiste of the Week’ and we concluded the show with the brilliant opening track of his second solo album. Finally, there was also a selection of ‘punk-era’ recordings from the likes of the Ramones, Siouxsie & the Banshees and Patti Smith, which we played in memory of Ian ‘Butch Brat’ Roberts, who passed away last week... Butch was Adelaide band the Bratsmixer, roadie and valued friend, and we saw all these bands, and more, play gigs in London in the mid/late 70’s!

Obscured By...

The Cat & the Brat were the ‘DOTS’ curating this week’s show, which ranged from the 70’s UK bubblegum pop of 12-year-old Ricky Wilde (yep, Marty’s son/Kim’s brother) and the sitar-laden sounds of 90’s US psych-sters the Surprise Symphony, to a selection of UK goth which included ex-Bauhaus singer Peter Murphy’s surprise 1990 US hit single, some new Malaysian punk rock and the very last song of Marc Bolan’s final UK tour prior to his death in 1977.

Technicolour Dreaming

A mixture of the familiar and the new was Technicolour Dreaming’s guiding ethos again this week. For the former, we began with a psychedelic  fave from the Who and later in the show, a different version of a Jonathon Richman classic, as well as an Adam & the Ants punkoid killer. For the latter category, we moved into less charted waters, with new releases by Pond, the Laurels and the Frowning Clouds, debuts from Adelaide’s Plasticine Army and Weightless, a demo from Big Richard Insect, recent music from the Moles, Surf City and the Green Circles, plus a track from an all-time favourite, 2004’s ‘Spirit Stereo Frequencyby All Night Radio, which was sadly their sole album... but what an album – psychedelic genius! We finished off with the penultimate appearance of Brian Eno as our “Artiste of the Month” with a brilliant live recording by his short-lived ensemble, 801... all brought to you by your hosts, the Cat & the Brat, on Adelaide’s eclectic 3D RADIO 93.7fm.....

Obscured By...

Sadly another RIP for this week's Obscured By... hosted by all three dotsJon Lord, ex-Deep Purple etc passed away the previous day, so a small selection of music from a few decades of his career was featured.   Whether rock musicians actually want to rest "in peace" or would rather crank the amp up to 11 is another matter, however.  We also played some cardboard postcard records promoting the 1962 Seattle World's Fair, some very obscure bands from a mid-60s "battle of the bands" and a few favourites such as Jacques DuTronc, Dave Davies and Nina Hagen.  Australian rarities included an early 90s re-recorded Easybeats track by Stevie Wright and a version of Friday on My Mind by Elliot Goblet best described as "unique".  We present the whole playlist here for your astonishment...
