"Next up is by far the strangest band on this CD. Now I liked Randy & The Finks with "I Married A Zombie" until a few days ago I was at my paying job (What, you thought AR made a profit?) and couldn't get the song out of my head all day. Drove me nuts! Great song, but beware this song is very catchy with its 50's high school dance band sound and it's hilarious story telling of his zombie wife chewing off his face while he sleeps." -Abrasive Rock

"Randy & The Finks continue with their unique punk spin on the 50's style rock. This one is less sock hop dinner and almost early 60's sounding with the prolific story of the tragic plight of "Rodent Boy & Penis Girl". This band would be the best band in the world to invite to your party." -Abrasive Rock

"Well, right the fu*k on. Antidote is ground zero for Misfits influenced creep punk, so I expected anther dose of graveyard shakedown here. The album’s title, and the red-eyed fetus on the cover, also pointed a bony finger in the horror rock direction. However, despite having more then a couple spooky moments on “SOF” (“Dirtnap”, “I Married a Zombie”, “Ghosts in My Life”), these Indiana-based finkenfurters are actually an entirely fu*kin’ wonderful rock n’ roll band, rife with catchy, melodic glam metal riffs, a whole motherlode of memorable hooks, and some truly crazed lyrics about Wookies and goofy, doomed lovers like “Rodent Boy and Penis Girl”. Randy Curran is the head(less) honcho behind Fink- the rest of the band could accurately be called Finkettes – and “Son of” is actually a re-release of just plain ol’ “Finkenstein” (2002), only with 5 new tracks, and a few just-added flash metal riffs. Can’t imagine what they’d sound like without the Pretty Boy Floyd guitars, but I reckon I don’t really have to. All I know is, I listened to these 16 weird little nuggets over and over today, as I slogged through the hostile traffic downtown, and I hardly even cared when the 47 bus damn near killed me with a sudden, blinker-less left turn. Now, that’s some good rock and roll. Straddling confessional roots rock, bombastic arena metal, and brain eating horror punk ain’t easy, but these Finks pull it off with remarkable ease. Smokin’. Sure, they’re ghouls, but they’re ghouls with guitars, which is the best kind. Bonus points: Think “Every Rose Has It’s Thorn” was Poison’s cheesiest ballad? Wait’ll you hear “Divine”. She’ll either leave you or fu*k yr brains out after this one, that’s for sure." -Sleazegrinder text.
