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

Amongst the new releases featured this week on the show was the Junipers Euphonius Trolley EP”, their pop-psych side-project, and if the track we played, “My Budgerigar (is addicted to rasmalai)”, is any indication, we can only hope they pursue this direction further and put out a full album – we loved it!  Do check it out! Also featured were new tracks from the Horrors, the Roaring 420’s, Kikagaku Moyo and Octopus Syng, plus two French favourites, Sudden Death of Stars and Forever Pavot. Older music was not forgotten, of course, ranging from 60’s singles by Ola & the Janglers, the Dave Miller Set and Rhubarb Rhubarb, with a 70’s recording by the Left Banke, through to more recent tracks by the likes of Psychic Ills, Gold Paint and from 1990, the debut single by Cat & Brat faves, the Luck of Eden Hall. We also featured another track by Adelaide’s own Twilights and you’ll find Part 2 of the pilot of their ill-fated TV series attached for your viewing pleasure. So, until next week.....
