Formed from the early starts of Ian Carpenter (vocals, guitars) & Nat Guy's (guitar & bass) collaborations - this Brooklyn band has grown to 5 members - Timothy Quigley(Drummer/Percussionist), Marcus Smith (Bass, Keyboards, Guitar) and Chris Curtis (almighty viola) - incorporating all their distilled influences together and adding their own aesthetic verve - all mixed up to make what is now the Argentine sound. Their debut cd In Other Fictions was recorded in 2003 and is now being distributed internationally thru Pehr Records Distribution come late summer 2004. Currently the band resides in Brooklyn, NY and is working on new songs to be recorded sometime in the future.
The album was recorded initially in a secluded Chinatown basement. When electrical gremlins arrived the operation moved to a tucked-away Long Island City loft with barking dogs and noisy plumbing. The 8 song album was put together surprisingly quickly despite the setbacks. Charles Burst of The Occasion recorded and mixed the album and Argentine couldn't be happier with the results. Gene Paul, the seasoned vet with an ear of silver, mastered.
