I remember Lindisfarne's Ray Laidlaw playing a big bass drum with a rubber fish on TOTP (or maybe Whistle Test).

Flute - pretty much everything Jethro Tull ever recorded.
Ian Anderson played an instrument call a claghorn on, I think, Dharma For One on their debut album, This Was. If I remember correctly it was made from a bamboo flute body with a saxaphone mouthpiece taped to one end and a toy trumpet bell to the other.
Just found a video from the 40th anniversary tour (claghorn from 1:40 minutes)

Midipipes on loads of Runrig tracks, plus the Hampden Park Crowd on "Loch Lomond".
The Great Highland Pipes are used as a rock instrument in one Runrig track (the name of which escapes me at the moment).

Yeah, sure you did.
Good crop of mushrooms that year was there?
Now you mention it, those kippers I had did smell a bit off.
