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

We began the show this week with a track from “Balloon Age”, the debut album by UK band New Electric Ride which is a strong contender for topping our ‘release of the year’ list. But there were other rivals for this exalted position played on the show as well, including Dodson & Fogg, Southern Boutique and our “Band of the Week”, Japan’s brilliant psychedelecists Kikagaku Moyo with their latest LP “Forest of Lost Children”, released by Beyond Beyond Is Beyond Records. We also featured some older tracks from bands as diverse as Belgium’s Moaning Cities, Los Angeles’ Maston and Australian legend Ray Brown before finishing with Iberian beat band Jysus, taken from a sampler provided by groovy Spanish label SunnyDay Records. So, until next week.....
