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

I was very happy to hear from the guys in Swiss band Borderline Symphony recently - they finally have a brand new, self-titled album out, their first full length release after a number of EPs, so I just had to help spread the word by playing one track each from the new "Borderline Symphony" LP and the older "EP 1". The band is unique in that they sing in German, Italian and English, and in my humble opinion, they're a cross between modern psych-pop and an almost medieval sound - check them out, and you'll see what I mean. I also flogged Dig The Fuzz Records groovy compilation "Astonishing Sound Show Stories Volume 1", with quite a few tracks getting on the playlist this week; they've just released Volume 2, which is heading my way from Spain, so I should have some more to playing in coming weeks ... hope you enjoy my selections below...
