about

Jon: What It Takes is a ragged loose thing, lacking the tightness and sparkle of Something Different. It is also darker and more perverse. Part of the reason for this was that I had no benefactor, and took part-time jobs in order to pay for the recordings. This meant my mind was scrambled, and I had to work very fast in the studio in order to save money, hence the roughness.

The album was originally going to be called Cannibal Love, but at the time I felt that the song eluded me, and I didn’t have any definite chorus and generally felt it didn’t work so I discarded the song…and the album became What it Takes …

…Years later I discovered the original tapes and realized that with a few simple changes, the song ‘Cannibal Love’ could be a little gem of a masterpiece! (notice that most of the musical construction of the song is pretty much identical to the song ‘Target Area’ from Alien City) Still, the album is a hodgepodge!
