Argentine means silver. Or it is a silver fish (also: Argentina Silas or Silver Smelt). You could also note Pericles, Prince of Tyre: "Celestial Dian, goddess argentine, I will obey thee!" But that still just means silver. None of the three members have been to Argentina. Most would like to.

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 - Argentine - the band. Their debut cd "In Other Fictions" was recorded in 2003 and is now being distributed internationally thru Pehr Records Distribution come late summer 2004. With "In Other Fictions" getting its international distro release Argentine plans to support the cd through more shows in and out of New York City and also garner more great press (see PRESS section) and radioplay. Currently the band resides in Brooklyn, NY and is working on new songs - while also supporting "In Other Fictions" - for a 2nd album 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.

Argentine is Ian Carpenter, Nat Guy, Marcus Smith, Chris Curtis and Timothy Quigley.

Ian Carpenter: Ian sings and plays guitar in Argentine. He has the clean, clear, languid lines from his Tele unless its time for distortion. One of founders of Argentine he contributes alot to the band's sound and aesthetic.

Nat Guy: Nat plays guitar and bass in Argentine. Nat also makes things for Argentine like the album design and Argentine's website.

Timothy Quigley: Mr. Quigley plays drums and percussion and also found the good sense to contribute glockenspiel, Wurlitzer and guitar to the album.

Marcus Smith - A newer and great contributing member. Bass, Guitar, Keyboards, Backing Vocals

Chris Curtis - The presence of Chris cannot be understated on his instrument. Really really beautiful. - Viola
