High Contrast, aka Lincoln Barrett, falls foul of an unsympathetic audience in Chris Turner (aka Favourite Colour: Black)'s video for Shotgun Mouthwash – which features on the new T2 Trainspotting soundtrack. In fact he finds himself in a roomful of Begbies...

Turner reveals that the video was inspired less by Trainspotting than Marina Abramovic. "It came out of a conversation with Lincoln where he said he’d always wanted to make a video where he gets beaten up by the crowd," explains Turner. "This reminded me of the Marina Abramovic 'Rhythm 0’ experiment - so we set out to do something where Lincoln is attacked with increasing hostility by his audience." 

"Due to the nature of the song, this was the first video of mine where I had to perform in it myself and not just singing but acting, with stunts, too," adds Barratt. "So it was quite a challenging prospect for me but thankfully we found a great director in Favourite Colour: Black who was very collaborative and encouraging. The team he put together were fantastic and the rehearsal before the shoot with the stunt team was invaluable in making everything run smoothly on the day as there were so many stunts and they all involved me getting bashed about!

"It also helped that the set felt like a real movie shoot with a great cast of character actors who were very easy to bounce off and most of the time I didnt really need to act but rather just react naturally as they were so convincing. It's also crazy to see the clips from T2 Trainspotting in the video, cutting from shots of me singing to Renton and the gang – pretty mindblowing for someone like me who saw Trainspotting as a young teen and got their first taste of dance music and club culture from it."
