Mitchell's Kiss of the Gypsy - Unfinished Business (30th Anniversary)


Recommended Posts



From MR Records:

KISS OF THE GYPSY 30th Anniversary album release

What started off as possible bonus tracks for Tony Mitchell’s forthcoming solo album, quickly turned into a full blown, long awaited “Kiss of the Gypsy” album.

2022 is the 30th anniversary of the KOTG debut album & Mitchell was to include bonus tracks on his new album that he had written as KOTG to include for a special edition release later this year on MR Records.

All that changed when Mitchell was writing the songs & more ideas started to develop.

“Over the years since we split, I was offered numerous major record deals to record a new KOTG album, but I always refused to do it as I didn’t think it would be right to do it without the rest of the original band members, but I guess now is the time”.

“Even though KOTG was only a small part of my journey, I was & still am very grateful to all the fans that supported us & continue to support my work”.

“As it is the 30th anniversary, I thought the time was now right & I would write a brand new KOTG album rather than just bonus tracks for the solo album & so went head on into prioritizing this”.

“I went back to using my old recording techniques with these outstanding musicians & friends”.

“As I was writing & recording the tracks, they took a life of their own & merited their own album release”.

“The ideas just flew out & I was so happy with the results. They seem to have a modern twist on the KOTG style & there are even a couple of tracks that were written based around old riffs & ideas that I am writing from home in 1992 that I just recently discovered in an old suitcase on cassette tapes”.

“As it stands, this is a kick ass 30th anniversary celebration album as a thank you to all the fans but who knows? If there is an appetite for future Mitchell’s Kiss of the Gypsy albums … let’s see what happens” …

Enjoy the party” …

Tony Mitchell

  • Stefan changed the title to Mitchell's Kiss of the Gypsy - Unfinished Business (30th Anniversary)

I know some here ain't fans of KOTG but I loved that debut way back when...still gets regular spins...Mitchells last few albums have been pretty good to my ears also...not in the same way though...but I hold out hope for this release with fingers crossed.

I've come across this many times on the eBays, and I would always check the reviews on the main site. I don't think there has ever been such a divisive album. You either love it, or hate it apparently. Personally, I never did pull the trigger. Maybe I should check out some samples.

    • That is simply brilliant...such a great band...love that artwork...this has made my day  
    • New EP out now, digital only. From rocknloadmag.com: Swedish melodic hard rock supergroup Crowne will release a new live EP entitled ‘Live From Studio Gröndahl’ on 19th August, a little treat to hold fans over as they await the release of a second album by the band. A live performance ‘Kings In The North’ from the EP is available from today on all digital platforms. The studio recording of ‘Kings In The North’ was the title track of their 2021 debut album, a record that truly delivered on the promise of the combined talents of the group members. Comprised of vocalist Alexander Strandell (Art Nation), guitarist/keyboardist/producer Jona Tee (H.E.A.T.), bassist John Levén (Europe) and drummer Christian Lundqvist (The Poodles), the record was a tour de force of Scandinavian melodic hard rock. It also featured guitar solos from Love Magnusson (Dynazty), who has now joined the line-up as permanent lead guitarist. ‘Live From Studio Gröndahl’ features the quintet tearing through five songs from ‘Kings In The North’ and allows fans to hear (and see) them playing live in an intimate setting. Crowne is the most exciting, thrilling supergroup created to date from the Swedish melodic hard rock scene. Having already crafted a beast of a debut, this stellar cast of outstanding musicians are currently working diligently to better it with the recording of its follow-up.

    • That's good to hear. The album Vanity Kills was pretty awesome. Some of the songs had bit of modern rock vibe to them which I thought was cool. Yep, hope we get to hear more music from you guys. 
    • Album out now. Listen to the rest of the album:                  
    • 'Forgotten Toys' out now. Listen to the rest of the album:            
    • Love these guys. In my opinion, they are more of hard/melodic rock than synthwave. Plenty of guitar riffs and solos. Another killer track, my fave song so far this year.

    • Yes, I'm the new bassplayer :). I have asked Ward Dufraimont to answer your question, as he is better suited to reply: In a nutshell : Expectations were high in 2010 with a debut album out on MelodicRock Records and big dreams, unfortunately the wheels started coming off from the word ‘go’. After losing our permanent drummer and rehearsal space and wasting precious time trying to sort that all out, frustration started to kick in. In an effort to keep moving forward, we recorded a second full length album in 2012, which sits unmixed on a hard-drive somewhere. Sometimes life gets in the way, and we decided to shelve the whole thing before friendships were lost. In 2022, with enough water under the bridge, we are back in full force, with a deluxe reissue of the debut album (out of print for years) to kickstart the whole thing. Playing out as much as we can, opening for the likes of FM, Jelusick, Gun, and others this year, spreading the word. We hope to have a new single out later this year, and more new music next year. A new decade, a new lineup, a fresh start. Nothing’s gonna stop us now !
    • New album out today.  Gave it one listen and seems pretty decent and in line with their last album. Worth checking if you liked their last one.
