Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein, the co-creators and stars of the cult hit about Oregon’s hipster music community, have also signed up Sex Pistols star Steve Jones, singer/songwriter Joanna Newsom and Marr’s former Modest Mouse bandmate Isaac Brock for cameos.

Actors Kyle MacLachlan, Tim Robbins and Amber Tamblyn are also billed to make appearances during the second season of the show, which begins in January.
