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 focus this week was again the on-going vinyl revival with selections from a plethora of bands using that format, including Germany’s Vibravoid, Finland’s Octopus Syng and Spain’s Stay from the UK’s brilliant Fruits de Mer label catalogue, Jacco Gardner on the Trouble In Mind label, a rare split single by Kelley Stoltz and a 7”single re-issue by We The People, plus the new LP by the Asteroid #4 on 12” black 180gm vinyl... all very cool stuff! We also featured new albums by Chile’s the Holydrug Couple, Crystal Stilts, Cate Le Bon and ex-Coral drummer Ian Skelly plus a track from the fabulous Night Beats’ latest offering, as well as a Barbarellatones song which was featured in a recent episode of TV’s “Sons of Anarchy” series, plus lots more.....
