Sunday night Aussie rock

Way back in time, when watching Countdown was the thing to do, we would occasionally be served up with something a bit left field that zoomed up the charts. Here's an example.
Austen Tayshus (pronounced "ostentatious") is the stage name of the Jewish Australian comedian Alexander 'Sandy' Gutman, born Sydney, New South Wales, Australia on March 17, 1954.

Austen Tayshus burst into the consciousness of Australians in 1983 performing his comedy single, Australiana, a piece written by fellow comedian Billy Birmingham. This was a spoken word piece using Australian terms that conjured up different words built on extensive sets of equivocations, such as " mate Boomer rang", " you wanna game of Euchre Lyptus", and " much can a koala bear?"). It was the nation's biggest selling single of the bloody year.

A big question is, will the phone come in both flat and curved varieties like the S6. We’ve already had a Galaxy Note Edge, although that handset only curved on one side, and it felt like a prototype for the Galaxy S6 Edge.
