Turks - Evansville

The Turks, Evansville, Indiana circa 1967.
The Turks released several 45's on the P.D.B. label that included:

111-112 Dianne - Baja
112-114 Hide Away - Wipeout
211-212 Love Can Never Hurt You (Just Break Your Heart)It's So Good

Other than the "R. Snodgrass" as the writer, I have no other leads on these guys! Jason@Indiana45's once told me that the "Young Turks" on the Dash label (Chicago) was the same group. at this point I don't know!
I'll add Diane and Baja when I find that 45, I have it somewhere in this mess!

There was a Randy Snodgrass who was a member of the "Roadrunner" band from Henderson, KY. Might be the same as the writer of the song.

I was in the group Silly Putty. The some of the members were: Zen Cymbala, Terry Rutledge, and Bruce McPherson. We played up against the Turks on several gigs. They always made you bring your A game. They were a great band. The drummer was Mark Standrig. I think he is a dentist in Evansville. His dad (also a dentist) was the manager and friend to all the other bands in town.....Zen Cymbala (NBC Universal Television Networks- Chicago)

I was a member of the band. Mark Standring. ALL the information posted is correct. Randy Snodgrass did write "Love can never hurt you, just break your heart" The band cut three more 45's at CBS studio in Chicago.
