A Truly Touching Album - The Last Dinosaur Release The Nothing

Embracing all of life’s ups and downs, the new album by The Last Dinosaur is a poignant and beautiful exploration of a tragic event in Jamie Cameron’s young life.

Meeting kindred spirit James Macdonald at music college inspired Jamie’s first foray into recording an album. The two wrote under the name of When I Was a Little Girl and released the well-received 2004 albums Good Morning Sunshine and Goodnight with Him. Very sadly, a year later Jamie was involved in a car crash that claimed the life of his best friend and co-writer.

Following this tragedy, Jamie began recording with another music college friend Luke Hayden as The Last Dinosaur, with influences including R.E.M. to Talk Talk. Their debut album Hooray! For Happiness attempted to come to terms with the divorce of his parents and a break-up with his girlfriend, while avoiding the real elephant in the room.

“I was doing everything to avoid confronting this really big thing that happened at an age when you don’t generally experience death and loss,” Jamie says.

“I was doing everything to avoid confronting this really big thing that happened at an age when you don’t generally experience death and loss."

Their new album, The Nothing is uplifting and life-affirming. Its lyrics may tackle the subject of mortality, but the gorgeous, overlapping, interlacing melodies are like drifting in a blissful reverie.

Created between 2009 and 2016, The Nothing is a stunning, affecting album that is also a touching tribute to Jamie’s late friend. “Someone called it elegiac,” Jamie says. “I quite liked that notion.”

The album is available on 180g LP, CD and as a digital download all from the Naim Records online store.
