Four years after forming, Ten Cent Redemption has come to a rest. According to frontman Rhett Lee, who formed the band shortly after the demise of Carolyn's Mother, his previous outfit, Ten Cent had simply run its course. "I just haven't been feeling it, and we've become so busy with other aspects of life," he says. "And it wasn't fun anymore. We weren't vibing as much together and we all wanted to do something different." For his part, Lee, who's been a part of the scene for over fifteen years, says he's planning on spending more time with his family. -- Dave Herrera
