Vickers Vimy are a five piece collective formed by Ed Drea & Fintan Hanley.
They are a Galway based band and take their name from one of the the most celebrated cross Atlantic adventures, the flight of the Vickers Vimy from New Foundland to Clifden, Connemara in 1919.
This struck a chord with Ed and Fintan, and the pair collected their notebooks and songs and endeavoured to make a record.
Produced by Daragh O'Toole and mixed by Ger McDonnell the album features Colm Mac An Iomaire from The Frames and The Swell Season and a good crew of friends.
So far Vickers Vimy have supported such greats as John Martyn, The Hothouse Flowers, and Maria Doyle Kennedy. They will release a single in February 2012 followed by their long awaited debut album in April 2012.
