I've been curious about this one for a while. It's the croaking sound in Siouxsie and the Banshees - Killing Jar.

It starts at about 0:55 ("Spring fireflies") in this video:

every person who doesn't like an acquired taste always seems to think everyone who likes it is faking it. it should be an official fallacy.

the "no true scotch man" fallacy.

    Assuming it is an instrument, and not just some sample of croaking/voice, it's probably a berimbau or guiro, each of which is commonly found producing similar croaking noises in Brazilian percussion ensemble.

    Kicked myself in the head a few times trying to remember what it was called from elementary school music class. Anyway, sounds like a Guiro or something similar. The one I remember from grade school was a bit simpler, like a hollow ridged stick that you dragged another stick across to make a croaking sort of sound. I'm pretty sure it that style was called something different, but the idea is the same.

    Both of those are very interesting. Even if that's not the source of the sound, that gives me something to work with. Thanks!

    Yeah, it's probably one of those or maybe a studio effect.
