Jamie Cameron and Luke Hayden started The Last Dinosaur in 2006 after a bout of severe friendship. Shortly afterwards violist Rachel Lanskey joined and late night experimenting on a multitrack recorder produced the recordings that would become 2010's Hooray! For Happiness, an album that The Line of Best Fit called "One of the most refreshing, creative and inventive records of the year."
Shortly before Hooray! for Happiness was released Jamie began work on follow up The Nothing, a collection of songs about mortality and coming to come to terms with the loss of a close friend after a severe car accident that happened during his teenage years.
After seven years in the works the album was finally released in the summer of 2017 by Naim Records to critical acclaim.
