It’s been quite a few years since his days in Rhode Island’s fantastic Small Factory (Someone needs to reissue their painfully out of print singles compilation Industrial Evolution). After Small Factory broke up Kemp started the Godrays with Small Factory drummer Phoebe Summersquash. That lasted for one album after which Kemp formed the Assassins.
Kemp has recently started his first solo endeavor and the first fruits fell from the tree earlier this month. It’s a four song EP called Rat D’Hotel which promises to be the first in a series of EP’s that are each limited to 250 copies. Musically, it’s pretty far removed from Small Factory. Kemp still possess his gentle voice, but he’s singing over danceable, lounge inspired grooves.
