The name comes from a mathematical term which describes terms that are easy to understand by humans but are not so easily understood by computers.

Recording

In a 2008 interview with "Uncut" Gruff Rhys described the process of making the album:

Although the album was conceived as a reaction to Britpop which the band felt represented a "conservative backwards movement in music" they soon realised that they were in an "old 70's studio making [a] 70's rock album".

Former members Rhys Ifans and Dic Ben contributed to the track "Long Gone" by leaving an answerphone message which plays as the song comes to a close.cite album-notes |title=Fuzzy Logic |albumlink=Fuzzy Logic (album) |bandname=Super Furry Animals |year=1996 |notestitle= |url= |first= |last= |pages= [p.6] |format=CD booklet |publisher=Creation Records|publisherid=CRECD190 |location=London |mbid=01d75a71-fef6-430b-832f-41a3dc02d594]

Cover

"Fuzzy Logic" is often noted for its cover depicting a variety of photos of international drug smuggler Howard Marks. Marks, who is paid tribute to on the song "Hangin' with Howard Marks", visited Rockfield during the making of the album at the band's request "wearing leather trousers and a cloak with a big entourage". As a result, the band later struck up a friendship with Marks, and are referenced in his autobiography "Mr Nice".

In 2005, the album was reissued with a second bonus disc containing additional tracks recorded around the same time period as the album.
