 Apparently everything else played by Spencer - which just appears to be a synth. 

A promo CD for the single carried the warning: "For promotional use only - abuse it and we will get one of Santa's helpers to drop a little present on you from a great height".

A funky little number built around a simple back beat with a basic synth riff over drums with lots of reverb. Lyrics are mostly unintelliigible due to Smiths performance and some overblowing of the microphone.
