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

The last show for May seemed to include quite a few bands from New Zealand, some of whom feature in the great compilation series "A Day in My Mind's Mind: 29 Kiwi Psychedelic Trips 1967-72" which is currently up to Volume 4. Psychedelia seems to have been a bit of a "late bloomer" on the Kiwi music scene, with psych tracks regularly in the charts up until the early 70's. Nowadays one of the cities to watch is Edinburgh, in Scotland - the new compilation "5", released by Dog's Got A Bone Records, is an excellent sample of a diverse range of bands, many unsigned or unreleased elsewhere - check out their sampler back-catalogue for more treats ... and this week's Technicolour Dreaming playlist is listed below:-
