"Methane -- four atoms of hydrogen bound to a carbon atom -- is the main component of natural gas on Earth. It's of interest to astrobiologists because organisms release much of Earth's methane as they digest nutrients. Other purely geological processes, like oxidation of iron, also release methane."
'Life On Mars' was Dexter Wansell`s first LP on Gamble & Huff`s hugely influential Philadelphia international label, released in the summer 1976, the titled track was a BIG tune on the London jazz-funk dancefloors at the time and is still considered a floor filler at clubs today. The combination of fat thumping bass lines, spacey elastic lead guitar, atmospheric soul vocals and loads and loads of spatial keyboard work on the rhodes and moogs, just can`t stop people from moving their bodies to it!......with backing from Instant Funk
Dexter also wrote compositions and arrangements for the likes of...Jean Carne, The O`Jays, MFSB, Teddy Pendergrass, The Jones Girls & The Jackson`s as well as many others. Here lifted from the same LP is this cracking track. Again the backing played by Instant funk.
