What started out as a bit of a joke, drew enormous interest and triggered a US and European tour in September 2006. After only a handful of shows together and 6 months songwriting (though many years friendship), Tim Rogers and Tex Perkins (T’n’T) quickly recorded a debut album in August 2006. With neither of them strangers to studio time, this debut album, My Better Half was released in September 2006. The first single was “Everybody Hates You When You’re Popular”.
