Nailhouse is a word used to describe homes belonging to people in China who refuse to leave to make room for development. The tactics used by these developers to remove the occupiers (who are dubbed as ‘stubborn nails’) are as inventive as they are cruel – they dig moats around their homes, switch off all water and power and even build motorways around their homes.
The track ‘Nailhouse II’ features Chinese girls singing and clapping in a song inspired by real life stories of strength and determination. The tracks ‘Harbour’ and ‘Baucis’ have also been influenced by real stories in faraway places . . .
