Nicole and Jeremy Braddock own and run Hardcore Sweet Bakery out of Watertown and their satellite location in Southington. Beyond the bakery, which grew out of a cupcake food truck, they also do community outreach programs like a book club, baking classes and a variety of events including the upcoming Punk Rock Flea Market on October 23rd at the Southington Drive-In.
We talk about how they’ve grown their business. We talk about their various TV appearances on cooking competition shows. Lots of fun talk about best selling cupcakes based on different band names and songs and custom cakes based on some outlandish customer requests. Lots of fun was had and topics branch out from there.

On this coming Friday, September 9th, International Anthem Recording Co. is releasing an archival collection of home recordings by the late great Charles Stepney. Check this Wax Poetics post with episode 1 of a 4 part Documentary entitled Out of the Shadows.
This Friday, September 9th, we’ll be holding a listening party at 5PM and amping up to it all day we’ll be playing whatever we have in the store associated with Charles Stepney – whether as song writer, player, arranger etc. And then at 5PM playing the record and handing out some promotional posters – anyone who comes by can sign up to win a promo copy of the LP as well!
So come on by Friday to pick up a copy and hang and listen and celebrate Charles Stepney!
This month brings a return guest in Zach Rowden and a new guest in Austin Larkin. Together they perform as Red Yellow Blue Green Black. Definitely go back and listen to the Zach and Henry (Tongue Depressor) podcast if you haven’t yet! For this episode we focused more on Austin as we had yet to dive into his musical background. We of course also talk about lots of things we’re listening too.
Austin created sirens for the recent tour with Tongue Depressor – some deep insight on those. General talk of musical education background and Austin’s brief stint in a band signed to Sub Pop and how that led to a few years at school for music and then on to Jakarta to further study gamelan. Lots of insight and interesting musical and other art related divergences follow. Give a listen!
