'When Richie and I spoke of another collaboration - Richie had previously released a great t shirt for my book on the making of Nic Roeg and Donald Cammell’s Performance  - for the release of my book celebrating twenty-five years of the release of Trainspotting, we started to kick around ideas. 

It’s a pretty iconic film, with any number of quotable Irvine Welsh lines. But I recalled Danny Boyle and Robert Carlyle both telling me the story of their first meeting. It always stuck with me. 

++++++++++

An extract from the making of Trainspotting: 

Danny Boyle had an actor in mind to play Begbie, again throwing a different slant to Welsh’s novel; he wanted to see the man who had turned down Shallow Grave: Robert Carlyle. 

“Ewan’s playing Renton, what other part do you want?”  

“Sick Boy?” 

“What about Begbie?” 

The actor wasn’t convinced. He had identified Begbie as a monster, a big, big guy.

“No, no, small psychos are the best,” returned the smiling Boyle. 

++++++++++

That was the T-shirt, right there: Small psychos are the best. 

I knew just the image we could use and left the rest to Richie. We had a huge gift and we were honouring Irvine, Danny and Robert, and of course Begbie.

Small psychos are indeed the best!' - Jay Glennie
