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 and ended the show with songs from the late 1960s of diverse style and from various locales, beginning with some fuzzed-out Scott Walker, an equally fuzzed track by Israeli band, Churchill’s and a sitar-drenched album cut by the Hollies, while finishing with a classic slice of “Nederbiet”  by Q65, which followed an updated version of a classic Michel Polnareff song by Germany’s Vibravoid from their 2013 EP on the Fruits de Mer Records label... and so it went for the rest of the show, with a mixture of new releases from the likes of Sydney’s Grease Arrestor  and San Francisco’s Cool Ghouls with older faves such as the Monkees through to Permanent Clear Light and the Sand Pebbles. Then of course there was our “Compilation of the Week”. Following on the heels of the Doors and the Rolling Stones in their “A Psych Tribute To...” series, Cleopatra Records is releasing "Magical Mystery Psych Out: A Tribute to the Beatles" next month and since we managed to grab a pre-release copy, we thought we’d get in early and make it this edition’s featured compilation and give you a sneak preview of some of the delights on offer, with great interpretations and remakes by Quilt, the KVB and Sugar Candy Mountain amongst others, so stay tuned to 3D Radio for further tracks in coming weeks. That was the show that was, so until next week.....
