In late- 2008, Montreal musician Tiga began putting out feelers to various media outfits, offering a no-hold-barred Q&A session to coincide with the release of his new album "Ciao!". I leapt at the chance to interview him, as I'd followed his career avidly since a DJ played "Pleasure from the Bass" at my wedding in 2005.
I'll let the interview speak for itself, but I will say that I was impressed by his candor, his aversion to prepackaged soundbites. It was clear he was interested in telling his side of things. Setting the story straight. Flipping the script, so to speak, in a manner befitting the so-called "Original Scriptflippa".
