The Painted Ladies - Stranger In My Country

The Painted Ladies - Stranger In My Country
In 1973, Indigenous singer/songwriter Vic Simms recorded the most important Australian album you’ve never heard, The Loner, from the confines of his cell in Bathurst jail.

In 2014, Brisbane Indigenous singer/songwriter Luke Peacock has brought together some of the finest talents in Australian music to form The Painted Ladies, including guest spots from the likes of Paul Kelly, Ed Kuepper (The Saints), Ian Haug (Powderfinger), John Willsteed (The Go Betweens) and many more under the production guidance of You Am I’s Rusty Hopkinson to recreate the important songs of Vic Simms and bring a message as poignant today as it was in 1973 to the mainstream.

About this track...

“Stranger in My Country” is powerful moment on the album, featuring the talents of Luke Peacock, and vocals from Peacock, Paul Kelly, Ed Kuepper, Kahl Wallace (The Medics), Roger Knox and Bunna Lawrie (Coloured Stone) delivering Simms’ powerful lyric about living as an Aboriginal man in 1973.
