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, on the stinking-hot first day of autumn, I featured a couple of new releases from the wonderful UK vinyl-only label, Fruits de Mer - Sendelica's sublime, surreal, and lengthy take on Bowie's "Ziggy Stardust", and a track from the new 7" EP from Italian singer-songwriter Claudio Cataldi, "Here She Comes Now". And closer to home, the long-awaited new album from Melbourne's The Citradels, "Are They Still Here?" also got a spin - the band are in the middle of their national tour, and will be playing in Adelaide at The Grace Emily this Friday March 11, so check them out if you get the chance!
