I may be writing nonsense, but taking the theory behind doing what a lot of S#@%gazers (^_^) were doing (layering fuzzy tracks at different EQ settings) may be the idea once you get the right noisebox, which I agree would probably be some kind of fuzz or over-the-top RAT-type stompie. If I had the gear to do it, I'd love to split the output into two amps and set one a tad mid-low heavy, the other with the mid-highs accented, and then pull out a Jaguar/Jazzmaster(for symbolic reasons, right MBV lover?) and ride the trem on every downbeat strum, with(as mentioned before) some delay and gobs of 'verb. Pixes? Um...start by taking the delay and reverb out a little, and um...well, you got me there.....Play HARD...Knock them stringies off of the saddles!
Then again, if it's just Kevin Shield's use of "feedback" you love, then I guess you probably don't need all that and can just go straight to a Fuzz Factory and walk up close to your local dimed amp, eh? Oh well~
Oh yeah, and if you've got your conscience turned off
, go to a shareware site and look for *Muse live at the Montreux Jazz Festival
, and DOWNLOAD it. You'll see 75 minutes of concert footage along with Matt Belamy and his incredible Manson-made axe with built-it MXR Phase 90 and Zvex Fuzz factory. He makes that thing absolutely scream, and lets the signal take over every now and then...It's an electrifying show, too!
Here's the custom monster he plays:
