Milage: After leaving Skaface and spending some time at the London School of Design, Derek helped this band record and release its only album, "Milage I." Shortly after, he replaced Ronnie Pudding as Taps bass player. Derek: "Milage was kind of a pre-Traffic Traffic. We had a flute player and a piccolo player, which was a bit much in the reed department. There was a lot of lightness in the band." (MD2) See Smalls, Derek.
