Lucien Freud (and Fluke gig)

Nothing to do with the band, but I heard today that Lucian Freud has died. One of my favourite artists and an early inspiration and influence on me when I was involved in painting and drawing. My favourite painting of his is this 1952 portrait of Francis Bacon. A small beautifully painted portrait. A 'real' painter, they don't make them like that anymore. Oh, and yes Fluke have a gig tonight (22nd July) at the Queen's Head in Kingston.
