The Last Dinosaur

Jamie Cameron and Luke Hayden started The Last Dinosaur in 2006 after a bout of severe friendship. Shortly afterwards Rachel Lanskey joined and late night experimenting on a multi-track recorder produced the recordings that would eventually 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 close friend James MacDonald 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.

‘An extended meditation on life, death and memory’ **** The Independent

‘To say this is one of the best albums of 2017 doesn’t do it justice’ 91% Sound & Silence

The Cambridge based band’s haunting and evocative songs are reminiscent of Nick Drake, The Leisure Society and Sun Kil Moon.

Big Boy Bloater and The Limits + The Deadbeat Apostles

February 15, 2018, 7:45pm - February 15, 2018, 5:00pm

Like your Blues with a lot of Rhythm and your Rock with a lot of Roll? We're thrilled to welcome Big Boy Bloater and The Limits back to Fat Lil's with their much-celebrated brand of R&B with a modern twist as part of a very short run of headline shows ahead of a much-anticipated album release in the Spring. Bring your dancing shoes and be ready for tales of stalkers, betrayal, robot lovers + more set to an infectious beat, with world class guitar, and a vocal that has not only been compared to a cross between Tom Waits and Howlin' Wolf but was voted as one of the ‘top 100 blues vocalists of all time' in a poll by readers of The Blues Magazine. This is good time music for good time people. The most recent album 'Luxury Hobo' was showcased on Radio 2 and gained the band TV coverage as well as making many 'best of 2016' lists. With celebrity fans already in the know and the general public catching on fast don’t miss this show before he takes off for superstardom! "Big Boy Bloater and the Limits have a style that swings and an off-kilter sense of humour. The result is hugely entertaining, and the packed tent shows an appreciation for this bright and flowing set" -CLASSIC ROCK MAGAZINE “The Big Boy with the big talent and the superb band is a unique artist. On form, like they are here, the three of them know no limits”. – MAXIMUM VOLUME MUSIC "Big Boy Bloater has a huge stage presence, quite literally, but also a lightness of touch in the deftness of the lyrics to his wry and humorous modern blues songs, and a twinkle in his eye. - BLUES MATTERS MAGAZINE With support from The Deadbeat Apostles On the door price £14 Sponsored by Hobgoblin Beer
