Splendid was a musical duo featuring Angie Hart and Jesse Tobias, who at the time were also husband and wife.
The duo met in Canada, August 1996, when Australian band Frente!, fronted by Hart, arrived to play over two weeks of support dates for Alanis Morissette's Jagged Little Pill tour, Jesse's band for the last two years – previously with Mother Tongue and the Red Hot Chili Peppers. After the tour, Frente! dissolved. Angie and Jesse got married, and decided to form a band, the result being Splendid.
The duo released its debut album, Have You Got A Name For It, in 1999. To their dismay the album was released only in Australia, with the American release canned by the record company (Mammoth Records) even though the discs had already been manufactured.
