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...

Sadly, we again paid tribute to another late, great Australian musician.... this week it was Mick Hadley [1942-2012], vocalist with the Purple Hearts et al ... but even though the ranks of those that made all those brilliant records grow ever thinner, the music remains undimmed!  Early in the Morning’, and Ray Brown’s ‘That’s Evil’ for example, still have the power to inspire, as numerous younger bands continue to testify, and in their turn inspire the next wave and so on, and thus why we include current bands such as Psychic Ills in our search for the path less trodden here on ‘Obscured by...’ – this week with just two dots to do the exploring! And it was not merely 60’s music we found, but a bunch of Los Angeles punkers such as X and the Zeros, some Krautrock from Sergius Golowin plus UK neo-psych trailblazers Echo & the Bunnymen and electronic post-punk pioneers the Human League... all in all, just another day in the [obscured] office.....

Technicolour Dreaming

Beginning with the Psychedelic Furs debut album and a track whose title says it all, we spent the next hour and a half playing songs from various eras and locales, linked in some way by that most elastic of terms, psychedelic!... “The Damned... psych?” you may be thinking, but they proudly wore their 60’s influences... and LeighStarDust’s achingly beautiful version of Brillig’s ‘Weighed Down’? Well, there are those initials! Then there’s the current crop of paisley-patterned popsters worldwide such as Pony Face, Youngteam, the Sun Blindness and the High Dials who are updating that 60’s swirl and jangle for the 21st century... not forgetting the Monkees... or our “band of the month”, XTC in psych-pop disguise... hmmm, not such a stretch after all for the Cat and the Brat....

Obscured By...

This week, we (Michael Hunter, Cat & Brat) played some 60s Asian obscurities that were so rare, we had no details for them at all.  Detective work now reveals their details below!  Equally rare Swedish bands of the era were also featured, and luckily videos of The Tages and Steampacket (no relation to the UK band of that name) were discovered, showing the quality of their work.  We also said goodbye to legendary session man Big Jim Sullivan, and brought things right up to date with music by the Allah-Las and Moon Duo, via strange mash-ups (RIAA) and medleys (Captain Sensible).  All in a day's work for Obscured By...

Technicolour Dreaming

Sometimes the direction an edition of Technicolour Dreaming takes is as much of a surprise for the announcers as for the listeners! One song suggests another, and before we know it, we’re on a rollercoaster ride of sound! This was such a week, with some of our favourites – Plasticland, Go-Go Sapien, Jacques Dutronc and the Bee Gees for instance - interspersed with oddities – such as a bizarre version Big Star’s Holocaust by Los Bichos – and brand, spanking new releases (from Buried Feather and the Love Parade).

Obscured By...

Though this week’s hosts, the Cat & the Brat, are a ‘duo’, this show was mostly about singles... the 7” vinyl kind ... and sometimes, their b-sides! From the Syssys and the Revillos to Psychic TV and Metal Urbain, we voyaged from decade to decade and country to country to bring them to you, even including a b-side featuring ubiquitous 60’s Sydney DJ, Ward ‘Pally’ Austin on the debut single by Python Lee Jackson! Not that we forgot the EP and LP formats either, with rarities from the likes of Frog Hollow and the Urinals to the Cosmic Dead and Apryl Fool... and with our predilection for boxsets, how could we fail to play a selection from “the Lost Tapes” set by Can? All in all, a singular show...

Technicolour Dreaming

Stormy weather here in South Australia over the past week or so, and a fallen tree knocking over powerlines in downtown Stepney, caused 3D Radio to go off-air for a while during this week’s show. What? No back-ups we hear you ask? Errrr, well, they failed also.... so it was a truncated edition alas, yet we still managed to fit in some new music, including a song from the Aves brand new EP [recorded in New York] and the soon-to-be-released vinyl single from Buried Feather [their launch show with TD faves the Sun Blindness at the Old Bar in Melbourne on October 27th sounds like the place to be if you’re in the vicinity!] plus an as-yet-unreleased track from the Citradels. There was also a song from the new White Fence double LP (produced by Ty Segall) plus of course some 60’s gems... but then all too soon, it was time for our “Band of the Month”, the Dukes of Stratosphear, and the end of the show! Hopefully we’ll be powering back to full length next Wednesday.....
