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)]

The first single they published was Etsit muijaa seuraavaa, which was released on October 25, 2002. It sold gold in a few days and platinum in 1½ weeks. 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. 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 This single features a previously unpublished piece called Tatuointi.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.

In summer 2003, they released their second album called Kaksi kertaa enemmän, and in the end of the year a music video Harmaata lunta.

The band broke up October 16th 2004.

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. In 1991, Guthrie bought the church that had served as Alice Brock's former home, which had been made famous by the song, and converted it to the Guthrie Center (http://www.guthriecenter.org), an interfaith meeting place that serves people of all religions. 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. He collaborated with poet Adrian Mitchell to tell the story of Chilean folk singer and activist Víctor Jara in song. This single features a previously unpublished piece called Tatuointi. Like his father, Woody Guthrie, Arlo often sings songs of protest against social injustice.

Gimmel's second single Roviolla was released on January 27, 2003, and it got the third position in its first week in the charts. He also had a minor hit with his song "Coming into Los Angeles". In 2002, almost 85 000 copies of the album were sold, and it was the most sold album of the year. Guthrie also made famous Steve Goodman's song "City of New Orleans", a paean to long-distance rail travel. 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. The song also provided the scenario (and much of the soundtrack) for the film Alice's Restaurant (movie). It sold gold in a few days and platinum in 1½ weeks. (compare with the song "Haddocks' Eyes" in Through the Looking-Glass).

The first single they published was Etsit muijaa seuraavaa, which was released on October 25, 2002. To quote one of the song's Carrollian twists:. 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)]. There are many parodies of the song as well. Gimmel is the third letter in the Hebrew alphabet, and it also means the number three. Alice's Restaurant was revised and updated some years later to protest Reagan era policies, but the second version has not been released on a commercial recording. They also symbolised an endless and firm relationship. The first recording of the song was done at the exact same time as the Apollo 11 Moon Landing.

Once these parts joined together a groom, a bride, and a witness. The lyrics to the song can be found at this location on Guthrie's web site: [1] (http://www.arlo.net/lyrics/alices.shtml) Although it has some fantastical elements, it is based on a true story. The word Gimmel means a renaissance wedding ring that contains three parts. "Alice's Restaurant" is regularly played on some radio stations every Thanksgiving. They decided to adopt the name Gimmel. The song describes how Guthrie was hauled into court for littering some of Alice's garbage after discovering that the dump was closed for Thanksgiving, and because of the resulting criminal record he was eventually rejected as unfit for military service when he was called up for the draft. The characters in the story, including both Alice and "officer Obie", who arrested him, became famous in their own right as a result of the song. Ushma, Susanna, and Jenni continued. Alice, in this case, was restaurant owner Alice Brock, who lived in a former church in Great Barrington, Massachusetts.

After a few weeks arguments between the girls increased, and Jonna decided to leave the band. The song, a bitingly satirical protest against the Vietnam War draft, recounts a true Thanksgiving adventure that began at Alice's Restaurant, where "you can get anything you want (excepting Alice)". Members of the first Popstars band in Finland were Jenni Vartiainen, Susanna Korvala, Ushma Karnani, and Jonna Pirinen.
