Well, whether it was Radiohead, later-era Smashing Pumpkins or whoever - whichever artist(s) 'inspired' Muse will just have to live with that...

If you haven't heard the Pains single, it's on Soundcloud for streaming:

Going back to the POBPAH, if the Pains are going to at a bit of a grungey feel to the odd song, then maybe they could round out the early-90s feel by adding in a few Shoegazey-style songs to their new album too? Alan Moulder did also produce the likes of Lush, Curve, MBV way back when, if memory serves correctly.
