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

The Brat was ‘flying solo’ for this edition of Technicolour Dreaming, but was not alone in the 3D studio... Seth Sutton from the USA, who records under the banner of Useless Eaters, plus Jack Petty, a member of his touring band, were guest DJs on this week’s show, prior to their gig later that night at the Metro. They came armed with a large box of vinyl to plunder, including  Useless Eaters latest 7”, a Viva la American Death Ray song, a reissue of Figure of Light’s 1972 single, classics from God and the Pretty Things and lots more... plus we spun Adelaide bands Rule of Thirds and Big Richard Insect, who were playing the Metro show as well... Also featured this week were a few of the current wave of American garage/psych purveyors such as Moon Duo, Lumerians and Ty Segall, before we ended with local outfit Brillig, our current “Band of the Month”. So a good time was had by all... but I do hope the Cat returns to the airwaves next week!
