If it's for recording purposes, I've got a similar sound puting a Big Muff into my Orange micro crush and over loading it to where it sounds like it's going to explode... Sounds like there some tape saturation on the whole mix on the song you posted

I'm asking more for the live purpose, and still I agree that small wattage amp could be better for that purpose - it will be extremelly distorted, but not that loud to make listeners' ears bleeding. I gotta check different reviews of Big Muff and King of Tone _________________
I think a Boss DS-1 will do fine to get this type of sound. This sound is clearly a distortion sound but it is pretty close to an overdrive. I think extreme distortions are too heavy and snarling to get this sound.

That's what I'm using the Ghetto Stomp for. I usually gig with a 40 watt Hiwatt or 30 watt Fender style combo. The Ghetto Stomp does a really good job of making them sound like tiny pieces of shit (in a really nice way)
Some thing about the attack and resonance makes me think it totally is. To be honest, I would try using an EQ before a ratty overdrive to really push the woofy lows and nasty highs, I feel like having a bash at recreating it myself later tonight _________________ musics

I don't know if Becks usual band played on this, if they did the guitar player usually uses a Fuzz Factory and an old Boss multi-fx as can be heard on Pressure Zone from Midnite Vultures. If you stuck an acoustic into that sort ovf pedal you'd get a good approximation.
