Philip Kinorra (born Robert Cromwell Anson,[1] also known by his other stage names, Julian Covey, Julien Covey and Philamore Lincoln) is a British drummer and singer who performed with Brian Auger and the Trinity, Graham Bond and Don Rendell, as well as with his own band, Julian Covey & The Machine, for which he sang and played drums. He also played as a replacement drummer for The Who's Keith Moon after he hurt himself in 1967. However, he only played one concert with the band before being replaced by Chris Townson, who continued filling in for Moon for four more concerts.[2][3]

Having decided to go solo, he adopted the pseudonym "Philamore Lincoln" and was signed to the US label Epic Records.[1] His only solo album, The North Wind Blew South was released in 1970, and includes his song Temma Harbour, which was a hit when re-recorded as a single by Mary Hopkin in the same year.[4] In the UK he was signed to signed to Brian Epstein’s NEMS label and issued one single, "Running By The River" b/w "Rainy Day", before NEMS folded.[1]

In 1971 and 1972 he produced two albums for the British progressive rock band Paladin, but having become disillusioned with the music industry, he moved to Dorset with his wife. As of 2015 he was living in Oxford.[1]
