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

Another episode of Technicolour Dreaming, with the usual mix of old and new, Australian, American and European psychedelia of various styles. Rather than prattle on here, I think I’ll just let the music and pictures do the talking this week … though I was intrigued by what the translation would be of the second track I played, by French band Dansez Avec Moa (Dance of the Moa). So thanks to my handy translator, I’ve found that it is: “The French are Calves [Well Well! I Commend You - Pfut , Pfut , Pfut]”. So now you know…. …and here is the playlist, with associated visuals - and apologies for the formatting - the blog is just not in a co-operative mood this week!
