Alright, there is a song that I have become obsessed with called "Train to Satanville" by Gin Gillette

I have been searching high and low to find out any real information about the singer. I found one other song she did called "She'll Never Let Him Go." But beyond that, I can't find a single thing about this woman! Please help if you know anything!

  • Nice song... good luck to find her ! Only appears on this disc Scum of the Earth maybe if you find the LP you will have more info on the cover...

I found this interesting story about it, but ironically the writer actually did not want to know anything about her! Here is the interview of DJ Andrew Weatherall.

I think Gin Gillette is actually Robie Lester who did Disney Records in the 60s. If you look at the 45 she is part of the production.

  • No, her actual name is Virginia Carllile, born Virginia Boyle (near Gillette, WY).

Some striking similarities with a record credited to Nancy And The Millionaires, called "Atooka, Okla.", featuring one Nancy Zoppi. You Tube link

. The Gin Gillette record is said to be from 1961, the Nancy & Co year of release was 1966, according to Discogs. So far, no direct connection can be extracted from what little info is available. Therefore , this assumption is speculative.

    The voice is only slightly similar. If you wanted to claim they're the same person you'd need a lot more evidence.
