While The Smiths' lead singer Morrissey may be more well known for his later work, guitarist Johnny Marr has been keeping busy playing alongside indie darlings The Cribs and former indie darlings now mega-stars Modest Mouse.

His song "Life Is Sweet" is featured in the show (which premieres October 1), but you can also listen to the track here: David Cross and Johnny Marr are old acquaintances.
