    Three different answers:

    1. None, because bassists in that genre rarely use effects.

    2. An overdrive/distortion, because it's always handy to have something to fill up space when the guitarist starts soloing, plus if its a decent OD it might give you a nice tubey tone without much grit (much like the tone on Oasis albums).

    3. Go into your nearest music shop and play every separate effects pedal that they have in there and come back here and tell us what sounds cool. Then the infinite wisdom of the collective can point you to examples of bassists using whichever pedals you like and you can have a listen and see if you like what it does to the band's sound.
