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

So here we are.... the date? 12/12/12.... the penultimate Technicolour Dreaming, both for this year and for the Wednesday time-slot and current format – we will be starting anew on the first day of 2013 – but more of that next week... first you may like to know what was featured this week? We began with a couple of Rolling Stones tunes from the second half of the 1960’s, their pop/psych/punk prime period. We played some tracks from UK label State Records’ roster, which includes the Higher State and the Hidden Masters [check out the short film about the label], there was an Antipodean take on a Nuggets classic, a “1960’s fake” on a 1980’s single by Thee Wylde Main-iacs (exact date unknown – the single purports to be from 1966, but apparently isn’t!), some genuine modern garage/psych from Thee Oh Sees, another track from Moon Duo’s brilliant latest, some local organ weirdness (is that the brown note?) from Horrahedd, an ode to pop from Denmark’s Surf School Dropouts, and finally, of course, another song by Scott Walker, our current “Artist of the Month” ... all these goodies and more brought to you for your listening pleasure by the Cat & the Brat.....
