Himmler's Brain is Called Heydrich and Beak>

I've been glued to HHhH (“Himmlers Hirn heisst Heydrich”, or “Himmler’s brain is called Heydrich). A strange sort of historical read about Reinhard Heydrich (the Butcher of Prague) and the men who killed him in broad daylight. The author, Laurent Binet, writes about his fascination with Heydrich and its progression and he introduces us to the players in this fascinating tale. Well worth the read.

Apart from reading I'm listening to Beak> - drone, psychedelic and funk. The band consists of Geoff Barrow (Portishead) Billy Fuller (Fuzz Against Junk) and Matt Williams (Team Brick). With a line up like that what can go wrong? Not a whole lot. Listen to them on bandcamp
