The rattling sound is on the ‘snare’ beat actually, whereas the bass drum is fairly normal sounding. What I was in fact playing was a ‘cajon’ which is a box drum, the type you sometimes see street performers using and which are thought to have originated from Peru. It can simulate a drum kit fairly well. I endorsed a manufacturer of the ‘cajon’ who called themselves POPercussion. If you follow the link there’s a comment from me down the page.

The shaker would have been one that we had in the studio, the background tv ambience was no doubt a random room recording (it sounds Australian to me when the guy says: “yer fucking kidding me” at 4:54) but I can’t recall what it was. We added various other samples. The more organic sounds (creaks and scrapes etc) were recorded in the studio. I believe the creaks were actually tension ropes on an ethnic drum but I’m not entirely sure … it was more than a decade ago.
