Possibly inspired by yesterday's eulogies to the Linn LM-1 and the beauty of simple drum programming, Mikey send me a very irritating tip-off about Drum Thing. It's a super simple stand-alone drum machine. It looks great, contains about 10 kits (and a few pianos, which are ideal for Steve Reich fans.) Why irritating? Because it's Mac OSX only. If this thing came in PC VST plug-in flavour, I'd use it every day.
