Insane local band on the rise
Alternative Punk is defined, insofar as something so indefinable can be defined, as 'a genre of rock music that emerged from the independent music underground of the 1980s ... the word "alternative" refers to the genre's distinction from mainstream rock music, expressed primarily in a distorted guitar sound, subversive and/or transgressive lyrics and generally a nonchalant, defiant attitude.'

That is a pretty good description of local Perth band Lost for Reason, comprising Fabian Stewart on lead vocals and bass; Nathan Platt on vocals and guitar plus Justin Clohessy on drums.
Lost For Reason formed in 2013, take inspiration from Brand New, Taking Back Sunday, Violent Soho and Blink 182.
If you'd like to hear one of their numbers - Junkie - it can be heard on Bandcamp here.
The first verse lyrics are: I need you like a junkie needs his pills I want you like an arse hole wants his thrills I see you like an angel you're so unreal coz I need you like a junkie needs his pills yeah
