Background

"Bobby Peru" is named after an eccentric, overtly creepy character played by Willem Dafoe in the David Lynch film Wild at Heart. Wareham read the phrase "Fuzzy Wuzzy" in a Don DeLillo book.[4] Wareham said that "The Creeps" isn't terribly good and probably should have been left off the album.[5]
