Jimi Tenor & His Shamans
Crisis / Fight 7"
Sonic-4 / JTS-2010

INSCRIPTION: 7/2 -89, Grammoplast.

[NOTE: actually this was released on band's own label since there was some disagreement with Sonic Records on publishing schedule at the time the record was supposed to be pressed, but the engraving 'Sonic-4' remained on the record center. Some amount of this edition has simple photocopied sleeves, the rest of them only with picture labels (Source: Pauli Kosonen & Jyrki Virtanen of Rare Magazine, Finland, issue 2/'93). The actual side A. of this record is probably, despite what reads on the label, "Fight" (this side has as its catalogue no. SONIC-4-A). There's no actual mention of Jimi Tenor, only the text 'Shamans' - Jarkko Kuivanen.]

[NOTE: Mekanoid was recorded and released 1990. Poko Rekords distributed the album and its promos, but in fact it was released on the own label of Shamans, and that's why there has been confusion over the years of its actual release among some people. The Shamans' own label releases were numbered according to the years in the names of some classic sci-fi books like JTS2001 and JTS2010; Mekanoid was supposed to be released as JTSCD 1984 but the members of Shamans forgot to make this clear to Poko, so it became out as SHAMANSCD 2. - Ilkka Mattila, who played guitar in the Shamans.]
