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

This week’s show featured a journey around the current world of psychedelia, plus assorted oddities and a side-trip back in time to the first pop psych explosion. So much music to play, and only two hours each week to squeeze it all into! We recently acquired a copy of the brand new addition to Born Bad Records’ wonderful “Wizzz! Psychorama francais 1966 – 71” compilations, Volume 3, making this series a serendipitous choice for our Compilation of the Week, mais oui! Back in the present, we played new tracks from the Wands, Pretty Lightning, Jacco Gardner, the Noble Krell and the Barbarellatones latest demo (love the lyrics!), fitted in some surf from Chile and Denmark, and some 60’s faves such as Gary Walker and the Rain’s much covered classic, “Francis”. And we finished up with Vibravoid’s ode to the Fuzztones organ player Deb O’Nair, which can be found on the just-reissued and re-mastered edition of their classic “2001” LP, complete with extra tracks and quite stunning packaging – it certainly gets our seal of approval! So.....
