Big Canoe is the 1986 solo album released by former Split Enz frontman Tim Finn. Finn had won Australasian success with his debut solo album, Escapade in 1983, while still a member of his longtime band Split Enz. Finn left the band permanently in June 1984, to focus on a solo career, and the following year moved to London and began working on Big Canoe. The album utilised a wide variety of instrumentation, including guitars, orchestral backings and traditional Indian instruments – notably on the ambitious single No Thunder, No Fire, No Rain, which was inspired by the Bhopal chemical disaster.
