When musician Luke Peacock first came across Vic Simms' The Loner, he became obsessed with it. The album - dubbed Australia’s first black protest record - was recorded while Vic was serving time in Bathurst jail. Vic Simms gave his blessing to the project to reinterpret the seminal album of prison ballads which has also been described as a lost classic.
