The bass is at my place, but now needs to get in YO' FACE

I bought a bass! Can you recommend any specific online tutorials / resources (e.g., on the youtubes) to learn to play the thing? I already play guitar. Bonus: I like Britpop. What are some fun Britpop songs to play on the bass?

Bought the Fender Mustang suggested in my earlier AskMe
. I'm happily plonking away on the bass.
I already play guitar, and I'm looking for some fill-in-the-gaps instruction for the bass. I'm trying to learn fingerstyle, for instance, but I'm more comfortable with a pick.
Also, as I get used to the bass, it's been fun to play along with recordings again. I like Britpop, and have been playing along with things like Happy Mondays, Stone Roses, and New Order. Some Blur as well. Anything else Britpoppy with a fun bassline to try my hand at?
