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

Regular listeners will be aware of our fondness for rarities, and this week we had a couple of brilliant examples. Firstly, we played from the new Orgone Box LP, a re-issue of Rick Corcoran’s classic 2001 album which includes remixes, re-recordings and an extra track from a 1996 Japanese-only EP, which was of course the song we played. We followed that with a lost Curt Boettcher-produced single from 1967, by our favourite ex-Byrd Gene Clark, which was unreleased at the time but finally issued by the fine people at Sundazed in 2008. Finally, towards the end of the show, we featured a track by Thomas Edisun’s Electric Light Bulb Band from their never-released 1967 pop-psych masterpiece, “The Red Day Album”, which was issued by Gear Fab records earlier this year. Then there were tracks by Eternal Tapestry, Holy Wave, the Left Banke, the Moles and many more, before finishing with UK outfit, the Sunchymes, as well as a song by Death In June, as a prelude to our forthcoming interview with Douglas P. next week.....
