Luke Wright | Nymphs & Thugs


Luke Wright is one of the highly renowned artists on the UK’s spoken word scene, and on 15 January 2019, it marked twenty years to the day since he first performed his poetry on stage. Since then, he’s gone on to become a multi-award-winning poet and theatre maker and has toured the UK extensively as well as gigging around the globe.

  • Luke Wright will perform a selection of work from 'Twenty'

  • Playback of some of the musical pieces that feature on the action

  • The chance to have your copy of the album signed by Luke

  • More N&T merchandise plus guest performances


“Wright is a clever playwright and a charismatic performer … ‘Frankie Vah’ is all the richer for its political and poetical layers … Wright succeeds in finding new and beautiful ways of expressing the everyday.” The Guardian

Following the release of his ‘After Engine Trouble‘ pamphlet on Rough Trade Books, Luke is currently touring his new show ‘Luke Wright – Poet Laureate’ to high acclaim. His previous shows ‘Frankie Vah’ and ‘What I Learned From Johnny Bevan’ chartered new territory for spoken word-based theatre shows, and he continually raises the bar across a range of mediums.

Nymphs & Thugs are delighted to be releasing this 2LP gatefold vinyl album, which features some of his best work over that twenty-year period as well as some brand-new unreleased work which captures Luke at the very top of his game.

Luke Wright | Nymphs & Thugs

“I’ve always wanted to release a vinyl of my stuff. A pink vinyl with a huge picture of my face on it. And now I have. It’s a double album and I’ve called it ‘Twenty’ as 2019 marks the twentieth anniversary of my first gig. I’m really delighted to have the album out with Nymphs & Thugs – Matt Abbott is a tireless promoter of spoken word and he’s done wonders with his label. I loved settling down in my office and putting my friend Salena Godden‘s record on last year – if people out there can enjoy mine as much as I enjoyed hers then all is good in the world.” Luke Wright

Copies of the vinyl are available to pre-order here, as well as being on sale at Luke’s shows, gigs and festival appearances and at N&T events. The digital album will be available directly from N&T, as well as through all major digital providers including Google Play and Apple Music.

“When Luke expressed an interest in releasing something on N&T, it was an absolute no-brainer. I’ve always been a big fan of his work – from his poetry sets to his theatre shows and books – and it’s great to introduce some to our catalogue. Having released Salena Godden’s ‘LIVEwire‘ in 2017, I’m honoured to now have two of the UK’s leading poets on our label.” Matt Abbott
