Daft dancing at 111 beats per minute is needed to help launch the new album by Isle of Lewis electro-trad band Face The West.

The island favourites had been off the live scene for some years until a series of gigs in 2019 showed they were still kicking and still drawing in the crowds.

But plans for launch of a much-expected new album have been thrown out of the window by the Covid-19 pandemic, leading keyboard player Keith Morrison of Wee Studio to issue the video dance appeal to fans.

The new plan is for an inclusive, fan dancing video to give everyone something fun to be a part of.

Keith said: "We are looking for people of all ages to record themselves doing silly (or serious) dancing to a track at 111 beats per minute.  We recommend dancing to 'Daft Punk - Da Funk' which has the correct timing and feel. 

“We've had loads of amazing entries so far of everything from trampoline stunts to rocking air guitar in the kitchen with wigs.  Looking forward to seeing everyone else's ideas!  We only need around 30 seconds of dancing from each person and please try to record your film in landscape format (sideways)."
