My Family meets er…my family!

Mr.Moore Snr, with Robert Lindsay

My sister happened to notice that My Family and Citizen Smith star Robert Lindsay was going to be in Derby at Waterstones for a book signing the other day, and thought it a good opportunity for her and my Dad to go down and present him with the portrait that Miki has done of him in his wonderful role as Sir Edward Pellew from the Hornblower TV series, along with a copy of my Fan Fayre for the Commons People CD that celebrates Derby County. Robert is a staunch Derby County fan, and now joins Ex-Goodie and fellow Derby fan Tim Brooke-Taylor as celebrity owners of my disc!  Our mutual friend Grant Serpell, the drummer from 70’s band Sailor, delivered it to him some weeks ago.

Robert Lindsay as Sir Edward Pellew by Miki

I’m only sorry we couldn’t deliver them both in person, but living here in Spain makes that difficult. Nevertheless, I’m extremely happy that Robert got to see the wonderful portrait Miki did of him. His words upon receiving it were “That’s absolutely marvellous! I shall treasure that.”

Progress against the Pilgrims?

10 The Pilgrims S

Today, Derby County face Plymouth Argyle at Pride Park. The second home game of the season, with the players keen to turn our stadium into a “fortress”. It’s an important game to win, for whilst we opened our account with a win against Mr. Ferguson Junior’s Peterborough, and got a hard fought point away to Blackpool, the two games in between, against Rotherham and Scunthorpe respectively, have been less than inspiring.

But, nick some points away and win your home games, and you’re always going to be there or thereabouts. So come on Derby and take the wind out of the Pilgrims sails!

Celebrating the game today with another piece of art from Miki’s “Countdown for the Commons People” calendar. As you can see, ever the safety-conscious artist, Miki has furnished the “Kevram” with a lifebelt!

Don’t forget, the “Fan Fayre for the Commons People CD” is still available by clicking the links in the sidebar.

That's MISTER Miles Addison to you!

That's MISTER Miles Addison to you!

Well, Ramsfans, Our Miles is back in action and showed just what we’ve been missing as he headed the first Championship goal of the season after just 4 minutes. Needless to say, the aptly-named 606er “Addison’s a Monster” was inspired to wax lyrical again, and in turn set me off! So here’s a taster with a nod to Mr. Elvis Costello… Addison – your aim is true!

Oh it’s so funny to be seeing you after so long son

And when you scored you know the Derby fans were all impressed

The Monster’s back and lookin’ in good shape

With his mate the snake

I’m not gonna get too sentimental ’bout the history of season’s past

I only know when you’re on your game

You’re by far the best

Addison, the Derby fans all cheer for you

oh, Addison, that much is true!

Performed by Kev Moore

At last…the curtain raiser!

So, as we bear down on Saturday, and the commencement of the new Championship football season, all fans let out a collective breath that they’ve been holding in since May. The speculations and tribulations of pre-season are over, and it’s time for every player to grasp the nettle….will The Rams improve on last season?  We’ve all talked the talk, now it’s time for the squad to walk the walk.  Miki’s calendar commemorating Derby’s 125 year history is available via our shop, and today I present in honour of our first opponents on Saturday, the month’s art featuring Peterborough United.  Come on You Rams!

Calendar preview – Shot-stopping Liz

Time to give you all a sneek peek at another artwork piece from the “Countdown for the Commons People” football season calendar featuring the “KevRam” logo from the “Fan Fayre” CD. (Don’t forget, you can get your CD by clicking on the links here on the site, the “Red Dog” limited edition is selling fast, so don’t miss out!)

Today, it’s the turn of Swansea City, who after flirting with the play-offs, remain in the thick of it with us next season. For those who don’t understand why the Queen is keeping goal – check the history books!

Rivals and Pretenders

In the football world, rivalry plays a huge part in the enjoyment of the game. You can’t have Cowboys without Indians, you can’t have Sherlock Holmes without Professor Moriarty. You can’t have Derby County without Nottingham Forest. They are the “bad guys” we love to hate, and, if we’re honest, we hold them in a certain affection, because life would be a little poorer without them.  Then, you have the pretenders, those that stand enviously just outside the clique, wanting in, but never being taken seriously.  I can’t say for sure who that is in Sherlock’s case, but in Derby and Forest’s case, it’s Leicester City. If there’s one thing that will unite Rams and Red Dogs, it’s the Crisp-munching Foxes.

To illustrate this state of affairs, my partner Miki, the international French artist, has produced a piece of art, as part of her new project, “The Countdown for the Commons People” calendar, which takes the artwork from my “Fan fayre” CD and creates a whole series featuring next season’s championship teams all battling the “Ram” . The calendar runs from August to August, so it dovetails neatly into the football season, and it will be available in a strictly limited edition of just 125 copies, to celebrate the club’s founding in 1884.  For now, check out the Leicester month!

Countdown for the Commons People

With the CD safely launched and out there in the public domain, Miki and I have turned our attention to a new, but not entirely unrelated project;

The “Countdown for the Commons People” calendar 2009/10

– which innovatively spans the year  August to the following July in order to highlight the new Football season.  The running thread through the calendar will be the “KevRam” from the CD artwork, and each month will feature the Ram facing a different Championship opponent, in humorous fashion.  All the artwork has been designed by Miki, my partner, who is also a renowned international French artist.(with a little help from me!)

As a nod to the celebrations this year for The Rams, the calendar will be strictly limited to 125 copies, and will be available in 2 different formats, A3 and slimline. (pictured below)

A  handy way to keep your appointments in the pub, and record our wins as we march on through the new season? UTR!

METRO Interview

I was recently interviewed by the METRO Newspaper and it featured last Thursday in their SEEN & HEARD section. I thought I’d share it with you here:

A song, and a sigh of relief!

Back in sunny Spain today, after some unexpected sunshine in the UK. I was a little concerned when I strode out onto the Pride park pitch for my soundcheck at 10 a.m. – when I was  accompanied by not only my backtrack but also a steady shower! Luckily the clouds passed, and I went over to the JJB soccerdome to put in an appearance at the RT stand in the foyer, where I had a great time meeting some fellow 606ers who have followed the story of the album from its inception, signing CD’s and so on. I was even honoured to have the track I was performing that day immortalised in face paint!


Great to meet up with the likes of Viewfrom, RJ, Unlucky Eddie, Chaddite, etc – and a big thanks to Dave and Paul Mortimer for arranging the meet’n’greet and signing session. I took to the pitch at around 2.25, with hordes of fans still outside the ground, but, judging from those who were in the area for the soundcheck, it could be heard outside anyway!  The acoustics of modern stadia play havoc with your timing, and I had a fun job trying to keep in time with the track, especially with the team stopping to watch in between their warm-up, just in front of me!

Job done, I headed for my seat in the Southwest lower, and witnessed a fairly nondescript first half in the bright sunshine, peppered with glimpses of Commons fast returning to form.  Half-time couldn’t come soon enough, and I headed into the Pedigree lounge to meet one of my heroes, Dave Mackay, along with Peter Daniel, and it was great to tell them what pleasure they’d brought me as a kid attending the Baseball ground in the early 70’s.

Dave Mackay and fan!

Dave Mackay and fan!

Peter Daniel, Kev, and Dave Mackay

Peter Daniel, Kev, and Dave Mackay

They were true gentlemen, from a different age of football, but who had given this club a legacy it can be justifiably proud of. Should the current squad need inspiration, they need look no further than Dave Mackay, who won what is now the Premiership for Derby both as a Captain and a manager.

It was a privilege to meet these legends from our past.

The second half brought a bit more fight from The Rams, and finally, almost inevitably, it was our player of the year, Rob Hulse who got the solitary goal in an unremarkable match, that secured our Championship status.  this time, there were no defensive slip-ups, and we hung on for the 90+3 minutes. The scoreboard made sweet viewing, and the SE corner erupted into a conga-come pitch invasion that ensured that the players could only thank the fans from the safety of the directors box.  It was a privilege to perform in our  stadium, and humbling a little later to see people in the shop buying my CD, which was borne of a love for the team that I’ve supported all my life.

The result upon which we build a new season....

I also want to thank the team behind-the-scenes at DCFC for looking after me on what was clearly a hectic day for them. Don’t forget, you can buy the CD “Fan Fayre for the commons people” from our online shop via the links on this website, from shopDCFC and their website, and also from the RT website and their staged events.

The impromptu conga by the South east corner, morphing into   a full-scale pitch invasion was almost reminiscent of the  Wembley play-off final – exuberance at securing safety clearly on a par with that achievement on Saturday!

The reason for that exuberance is hope -hope of a bright future for The Rams. It is surely a task Nigel Clough relishes – putting Derby County back where it belongs, with the cream of English Football. In these days of the 30-second soundbyte, and the even shorter attention span, let’s hope he gets the time and understanding he deserves to the job properly.

The players thank the amazing support
