Lyrics
Don't go into the forest, sunshine
Nothing for you in there
Don't go into the forest, darling
Beware the grizzly bear

The jabberwock, the bandersnatch
They both await you there
The chicken of doom, the evil tree
Will tangle in your hair

Look each way before crossing
Defense de fumer, s'il vous plait
Watch your back and watch your side
You haven't got all day

Don't go into the forest, sunshine
Nothing for you in there
Don't go into the forest, darling
Pack clean underwear

Arf!
Thanks, Mr Hound. I'm fond of the bits my pal Pete put on at the end - a lot of English mums and grans sound just like that!

but...what's wrong with the forest?!
The photo looks totally inviting. Maybe jabberwocks can be friendly on a sunny day like this? Just saying...and don't even know why all bandersnatches have to be scary. Feel like I'm missing something here;)

The beautiful guitar soundbed reminds me of Eric Wollo's music and had me expecting anything but Reggae. Very interesting song - bass sounds great, e-guitars and rhythm are solid and carry the song. Wasn't entirely sure about the (flanger?) effect on the vocals and maybe the e-guitar interlude around 3mins, details though.
Really enjoyed this. Have to check out more of your music!

The pic is the woods around Stafford Castle in the UK, and yes it's very nice! On the other hand, Cannock Chase on the outskirts of Stafford is the original Mirkwood of Tolkien fame and can be very scary indeed. (But I still spent hours wandering around it.) Thank you for the comments on the music; I will have a listen. Although Macjamming is all good fun, it helps to improve wherever you can.

The dreaded chicken of doom
Hi Graham. No. Not the dreaded chicken of doom :-) Nice, cool styling on this one. The guitar and bass work give it that subtle reggae feel. Good sounding, understated mix. Well done. Regards, Peter.

Thanks. I used to go mad with the effects like someone who just discovered Word Art in MS Office. I try to keep it to reverb, compression and actually playing stuff properly nowadays. Still love daft sound FX and dialogue though.

You're right, and I think that they still do. One day I'd like to investigate exactly why it is so important to have clean undies on when you get run over. Is there a special government department devoted to this? What do they hope to achieve? How will it make the impact of the truck on your body less catastrophic? Why do toilets on British trains spew their contents out in the open air?

great music
In the best British tradition, reminded me of the Canterbury music of Caravan and those kinda bands
could be your warm vocals..
I really dig the repeating guitarpatterns
I like the fuzzy sound that goes with the bass
Good song, very much enjoyed

Or it could be the daft lyrics. I grew up with Gong, Floyd, Caravan, Hatfield, so it's bound to rub off.
The fuzzy sound is just my crap guitar on ludicrous distort. The warm vocals are the result of the iMac mike proving better in all respects than the old Shure mike I struggled with for years. That's progress for you.
Thanks for listening, anyway.
