Starting new EP: Help me get that Brit rock sound!

Ok, so here's the deal... My partner and I are producing an EP for a really cool band. Preproduction has been awesome and the tunes are ready. Now I just want to head the right direction with sounds. They're all into Oasis, which is cool, but those records are smashed and more mono-ish and I don't know how to do that. Maybe I need to learn? I'm more into (and therefore better at) US radio rock/pop type stuff, if that makes any sense.

So, fellow slutz, any words of wisdom for an American pop guy on how to approach the Brit Rock sound? We're tracking in a great room with all of the trimmings. Have 5 channels of V76's which I plan to use a lot. Neve clones, api, distressors, etc. And lots of vintage mics, etc. So given lots of choices for tools, how would you approach the drums--mic selection, placement, preamps, squash to tape, etc? Just basically looking for some new ideas to have fun with. I can try to post some pics later, too...
