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 new Brian Jonestown Massacre album came into our P.O. box this week so, needless to say, we felt it was a fine way to begin this week’s show before we moved into our trawl through the wonderful world of psychedelia. Also featured this week were tracks from a couple of cool Russian bands, Mystic Brew and the Spoon Box, with more to follow in coming weeks from what appears to be a very vibrant psych scene... special thanks to Dimitry of Mystic Brew for putting us onto some of the great bands there! Northern Europe also provided us with tracks by such Scandinavian bands as Octopus Syng and the Jessica Fletchers plus, from Poland, the White Kites, while from the Philippines we played D’Swooners, as well as a bunch from the USA and Britain including Flavor Crystals and Jeffertitti’s Nile from the former and Scars, the Open Mind and Schnauser from the latter, not forgetting Australia’s entries, Shining Bird and Subtract-S and New Zealand’s the Avengers, who did a great cover of “Listen, Listen”, which has to be one of our favourite 60’s classics! That’s your lot - another “Technicolour Dreaming” streamed into your ears, so until next week.....
