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...

Featuring The Damned as the psychedelic group Naz Nomad & the Nightmares, from an album purporting to be the soundtrack of a non-existant film.  Also starring a rare orchestrated Fraternity B-side, some Moving Parts and a Radioactive Sandwich.  Ably supported by The Searchers, Nico and rare Australian power pop from the abysmally named but somewhat groovy Beaut.  International stars included Singapore Sling, the Golden Earrings, Pussycat and the interestingly named Ladies WC.  All this and more, produced by Michael Hunter, Cat & Brat dot dot dot.
