Hussein Kesvani from 'River (something)'

Nick talks to the podcaster and journalist Hussein Kesvani. Hussein is one of the hosts of such podcasts as Trashfuture and Ten Thousand Posts, and in 2019 he released his first book 'Follow Me, Akhi - The Online World of British Muslims'. In this chat Hussein talks about his short-lived days playing bass in emo and indie bands while at secondary school in Kent, the phenomenon of one-gig bands in the outer London area, and why Hussein's own heartbreak poetry never made it in to any of the band's songs.Follow Hussein on Twitter @HKesvaniHussein's podcasts include - TRASHFUTURETen Thousand PostsBuy Hussein's book 'Follow Me, Akhi - The Online World of British Muslims' out now on Hurst PublishersCREDITSJingle and beds composed by Anya Pearson - Insta: @anyaplaysguitarThe debut album of Anya's band Dream Nails is out nowLead vocals by Imo BermanArtwork by Eloisa Henderson-FigueroaInsta: @eloisaillustratorListen to all episodes of the podcast at  www.myteenageband.comWeb design by Imo VeeInsta: @imo.veePresented/Produced by Nick Taylor@nick_tea
