On With the Show’s

Flashback to Variety Today 1993


WALLY the Worker (alias Johnny Holmes) has come up with a pre-election recording to which just about every Australian could relate. I must say, I had a giggle the first time I heard it and have since played it to a few friends who were equally amused.

Titled `They’re Gonna Get Ya!’, the single has now been picked up on the Dino Label and released on a full album, much to the delight of the man who has endeared himself to thousands of Midday Show views as the workers `little Aussie hero’.

The exceptional thing about this single is that it has encapsulated the very thoughts of the average Australians and expressed them in simple terms, backed by a catchy tune on `They’re Gonna Get Ya!’. This is a credit to the song’s composer, all-round Australian entertainer Carter Edwards.

Radio personality John Laws saw the merit in this single on first contact. And he is known for his exceptional ability in picking a winner.
