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 seems that 2007 was a good year for Australian compilations, seeing the release of the excellent "Tomorrow is Today - A Tribute to the Australian Psychedelic Scene 1966-1970", as well as Off The Hip's "Burn Your Fingers on The Sun", both of which are well worth tracking down if you can find a copy. I featured tracks from both comps, as well as Ty Segall's new release "Emotional Mugger", a few classics from the late 60's, and some more recent Australian efforts, plus quite a few cover versions....
