The Fiery Maze / was conceived by Porter and Finn in 1995 as a ‘rock concert album’. The talents of these two extraordinary artists will combine to produce raw, intimate songs about love, sex and obsession, as Finn is joined on stage by the mesmerising Abi Tucker.
Porter’s previously unpublished lyrics deal with the disillusions of love, as well as the blinding moments of blazing connection. Porter is known for the visceral power of her language; for crafting characters, scenarios and poems that crackle with sexual energy. The journey into ‘love’s hopeless fiery maze’ is no exception.
Conjuring a wild world of lust, paranoia and possession, this consuming song cycle / unites two iridescent artists—musician Tim Finn and poet Dorothy Porter.
"FINN [IS] EVERY INCH THE ELDER STATESMAN OF ROCK"
"[DOROTHY PORTER] WAS A STAR PERFORMER, IN THE TRADITION OF A ROCK STAR RATHER THAN A POET"
