The Fug Yep Soundation is a 7” record series created in loving memory of our friend & musical hero, Richard Swift. It’s goal, through releasing music, is to raise awareness for addiction and bring community to those suffering. This series will directly support the Swift family and two incredible organizations, MusiCares and Music Support UK who will help facilitate this mission.

You are not alone.
