It’s not very often that poetry is released on vinyl, and we’re honoured to have two of the UK’s foremost spoken word artists on this format, plus the highly acclaimed debut album from Matt Abbott‘s band Skint & Demoralised.
Salena Godden‘s ‘LIVEwire’ album was shortlisted for The Poetry Society’s prestigious Ted Hughes Award for New Work in Poetry in 2017. It features a selection of live recordings from festivals and theatres, plus studio recordings and archive material spanning three decades.
