I want to get a tone like this band's guitar: http://www.myspace.com/ourfirstsummer ("Kick Me When I'm Down")

Any pointers?

a squier and a marshall mg should do the trick!

In gr.8 we got into purple nurples so much that the school would suspend anyone they saw doing it. We had really good aim.

use your ear and try messing with the eq yourself. its always good to replicate what your ears hear.

lots of treble and mids roll the bass back to around 4 and use a single coil pickup in the bridge position.

this may sound like a dumb question, but how do single coils benefit to get that tone vs. double?

If a joke - kudos to you. If not - epic phail. Eq'wise use a lot of high-end and a fair bit of mids....hardly any bass at all.
