Gimmel was a Finnish girl group.

In the Spring of 2002, a Popstars competition was held in Finland to find members to form a pop band. 454 young women participated in the singing tests. 25 girls made it to the final selection round. Members of the first Popstars band in Finland were Jenni Vartiainen, Susanna Korvala, Ushma Karnani, and Jonna Pirinen. After a few weeks arguments between the girls increased, and Jonna decided to leave the band. Ushma, Susanna, and Jenni continued. They decided to adopt the name Gimmel.

The word Gimmel means a renaissance wedding ring that contains three parts. Once these parts joined together a groom, a bride, and a witness. They also symbolised an endless and firm relationship. Gimmel is the third letter in the Hebrew alphabet, and it also means the number three. Other than these meanings, "gimmel" also is a slang term for slapping man's face with one's penis [source: UrbanDictionary.com (http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Gimmel)]

Gimmel's first album Lentoon came out November 22, 2002 and just after it was published, it shot up to the number one spot in the official Finnish album chart and remained there for three weeks. In 2002, almost 85 000 copies of the album were sold, and it was the most sold album of the year.

Gimmel's second single Roviolla was released on January 27, 2003, and it got the third position in its first week in the charts. This single features a previously unpublished piece called Tatuointi. Gimmel won in three categories in Emma-gaala 2003: best pop/rock-newcomers, the début album of the year, and the most sold album of the year.

The band broke up October 16th 2004.
. In summer 2003, they released their second album called Kaksi kertaa enemmän, and in the end of the year a music video Harmaata lunta. It was reported in December 2004 that Glitter was once again living in Cambodia, and had bought a house there. Gimmel won in three categories in Emma-gaala 2003: best pop/rock-newcomers, the début album of the year, and the most sold album of the year. Many of these songs were originally written for the Lost On Life Street album, which was scheduled for release in 1998 but was cancelled following Glitter's arrest. This single features a previously unpublished piece called Tatuointi. In September 2001, Glitter released a new album, called On, featuring new material alongside tracks recorded prior to his conviction.

Gimmel's second single Roviolla was released on January 27, 2003, and it got the third position in its first week in the charts. After his whereabouts were published in British newspapers, he relocated to Cambodia but was later expelled by the Cambodian authorities after a public outcry at his presence. In 2002, almost 85 000 copies of the album were sold, and it was the most sold album of the year. After his release from prison, Glitter moved to Cuba in 2000. In its first week on the charts, the single rose to first in the Finnish single's chart and held that position for four weeks. Gimmel's first album Lentoon came out November 22, 2002 and just after it was published, it shot up to the number one spot in the official Finnish album chart and remained there for three weeks. (This prompted his scene in the Spice Girls movie called Spice World: The Movie to be cut from the final release.). It sold gold in a few days and platinum in 1½ weeks. The staff there found pornographic images of children on the hard drive and called the police. Glitter was arrested and, on November 12, 1999, was convicted on child pornography charges; he was sentenced to four months in prison.

The first single they published was Etsit muijaa seuraavaa, which was released on October 25, 2002. His new career fell apart on November 18, 1997, after he took his computer to UK computer store PC World to be mended.

Active in several projects during the '80s and early 1990s, Glitter released a cover of the Animals' "The House of the Rising Sun", which was a major hit. Gimmel is the third letter in the Hebrew alphabet, and it also means the number three. After "All That Glitters" (1981), a medley of past hits, launched a successful career as a performer, though his studio recordings were rare. They also symbolised an endless and firm relationship. In the 1980s, Glitter took a major part in The Rocky Horror Show in New Zealand and released a few minor hits in 1977.

Once these parts joined together a groom, a bride, and a witness. He retired briefly in 1976, but by the end of 1977 he was back in the charts with "It takes all night long", from his album of that year "Silver Star". The word Gimmel means a renaissance wedding ring that contains three parts. His "Greatest Hits" album followed. They decided to adopt the name Gimmel. "Always Yours", "Oh Yes! You're Beautiful", "Doing Alright With the Boys" and "Love Like You and Me" were all successes, but "Papa Ooh Mow Mow", his next single, was only a moderate hit. Ushma, Susanna, and Jenni continued. Glitter's back up band, the Glitter Band, even became hit-makers by association.

After a few weeks arguments between the girls increased, and Jonna decided to leave the band. "I'm the Leader of the Gang (I Am)", "I Love You Love Me Love" and "Remember Me This Way" were all huge hits. Members of the first Popstars band in Finland were Jenni Vartiainen, Susanna Korvala, Ushma Karnani, and Jonna Pirinen. With his shows and persona becoming more and more outrageous, Glitter's fame showed no sign of stopping. 25 girls made it to the final selection round. This was followed by a series of similar singles, all successful, as were the first two albums, Glitter and Touch Me. 454 young women participated in the singing tests. "Rock and Roll" eventually became a huge hit in 1972 in the United Kingdom, though it took six months to enter the charts.

In the Spring of 2002, a Popstars competition was held in Finland to find members to form a pop band. Before the song was released, Gary Glitter chose his modern name. Gimmel was a Finnish girl group. Finally, Leander and Glitter decided that glam rock was the way to go, and began recording "Rock and Roll", a fifteen minute song that eventually became two parts ("Rock and Roll (Part 1)" and "Rock and Roll (Part 2)"). This was followed by "We're All Living in One Place" as Rubber Bucket. Using the name Paul Monday, the singer released "Musical Man" and "Here Comes the Sun" (George Harrison), then "Soul Thing" and "Stand!" (Sly & The Family Stone) were released as Paul Raven.

Boston International toured widely. After the collapse of the Mike Leander Show Band, Raven formed Boston International (later known as the Bostons) with John Rossall, a professional saxophonist. In 1965, Raven joined in the Mike Leander Show Band, also producing singles by Thane Russell and the Poets. He signed with Parlophone Records in 1961, and Raven released two unsuccessful singles, appearing on Ready Steady Go, a television show, and working in several commercials.
