England’s DESPERATE BICYCLES not only wrote songs encouraging people to join bands, start labels and whatnot, they also provided this handy 1978 primer on their rights upon getting arrested. Many Britons of punk age were, in fact, finding themselves under arrest around this time – miners’ strikes, dole queues and all that.

“Advice on Arrest” was one of 6 songs on their “New Cross, New Cross” 7"EP, and I thought you might like to hear it.
