The next generation of contemporary Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists take the first Australian black protest album - and make it their own.

Aboriginal music pioneer Vic Simms recorded The Loner in 1973 while serving time in Bathurst Gaol. This album of country soul, regarded by many as a lost classic, has inspired countless artists. Now the Painted Ladies project brings the next generation of Indigenous & Islander artists together to revisit and revive Australias first black protest songs.

The Painted Ladies are singer - songwriter Luke Peacock, passionate performers (& Cairns´ own) The Medics, and a range of guest artists for a special musical collaboration. A brand new version of the album will be accompanied by a documentary, as well as a gritty, powerful live music experience.

"If you´re brown stay ´round

But if you´re white, it´s alright

But if you´re black, you get back into the shadows"
