We’re thrilled to announce that Salena Godden‘s highly-acclaimed ‘LIVEwire‘ album is now being stocked in Rough Trade’s UK stores, and is also on sale via their online store.

After Salena Godden‘s ‘Pessimism Is For Lightweights’ release on Rough Trade Books became one of the poetry smash hits of the summer, we couldn’t resist commemorating it by producing a brand new t-shirt.
