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

It's the first day of summer here in Adelaide, but you wouldn't know it - cold, raining and generally miserable! Hopefully I managed to cheer up a few listeners with my choice of music  - including Harry, who was taking a well deserved rest to ward off an incipient lurgy!! This weeks show was a bit on the short but sweet side, only lasting for an hour, but I'll be back next week hosting the whole 2 hours for a change. Oh, and a belated congratulations to The Systemaddicts, who have made it to the Number 1 spot on Three D Radio's Top 20+1 chart with their new CD - and it's not even released yet!

Anyway, enough of my rambling - here's what I played ...

Wall of Death - Light My Fire [The Doors]     ("A Psych Tribute to the Doors" 2014 USA)

Mr Elevator and the Brain Hotel - Are You Hypnotised?     (7" single 2013 Los Angeles USA)

The Red Plastic Buddha - A House is Not A Hotel [Love]     ("Songs for Mara" 2014 Chicago USA)

Love - Seven and Seven Is     ("Da Capo" LP 1967 USA)

Balduin - Shadows of Your Mind     ("Post from Mars" LP 2014 Switzerland)


Balduin - In A Better Land     ("Post from Mars" LP 2014 Switzerland)

Mick Ronson - Only After Dark     ("Slaughter on 10th Avenue" LP 1974 UK)

White Candles  - Monolith     ("Flowers for Delia" 2014 Philadelphia USA)

The Wondermints - The Party     ("Shots In The Dark" compilation 1996 USA)

The Tiki Tones - Monkey Farm     ("Shots In The Dark" compilation 1996 USA  )

The Playboys - Theme from Dr No     (7" single 1965, taken from "Board Boogie - Surf & Twang from Downunder" compilation, 2002)

The Barbarellatones - Electric Pussycat     (demo 2014 Hawaii, USA)

Flyying Colours - Running Late     ("ROYGBIV" 2015 Melbourne, Australia)

and an acoustic version of Wall of Death's cover of  "Light My Fire" - quite a bit different to the album version!
