Andrew Marston introduces live music from Khaos Theory (Redditch)
Unsigned, undiscovered and under-the-radar music, as recorded at the Cock & Magpie in Bewdley.
The venue hosts a number of regular open mic nights in their upstairs bar - so it was a natural choice for us to take the Introducing show there.
Khaos Theory are a new hard rock/metal band from Redditch.
Having played in previous bands together, Chris (guitar) and Daimon (vocals) joined forces to create a new project, with Mike joining later on bass and Chelsea on drums!

Meet The Musicians
Since 2011, we've been taking the show out on-the-road showcasing the very best musicians from our two counties.
Once a month, we've been recording acts chosen by us at a
variety of venues across the area - including at some of our biggest
Our next recording session takes place on Friday 31 May at the
Wychwood Festival on Cheltenham Racecourse on our very own stage and
features the five acts we plan to broadcast throughout June.
Acts we've chosen to appear at the festival are Worcester's Becky
Rose, This Wicked Tongue, The Delray Rockets, Leominster's George
Barnett, Malvern's Dogs Of Santorini, Hereford's Jimmy Heartbreak and
Brassick, who are from both counties.
None of these acts knew they were being considered for a live session
- they were chosen based on the tracks they uploaded here - which led
them to receiving airplay on BBC Hereford & Worcester.
Meanwhile, if you're a venue or promoter, and would like to be featured in a future recording session please get in touch.
To answer that very question, we're joined by the king of home studio production Paul White - Editor-In-Chief of Sound On Sound magazine.
Paul lives in Malvern - and says the time has nearly come to throw out that PC and record the lot onto your phone…

BBC Introducing Musicians' Masterclass
If you're a budding solo artist, an MC, or just started a brand new band then you should check out BBC Introducing Musicians' Masterclasses.
On Thursday 21 March, we visited various locations across the UK - Glasgow, Belfast, London, Salford & Cardiff. DJs from all over BBC Radio, music industry experts and artists got together to host a day of sessions, workshops and masterclasses.
We covered everything from song writing & MC workshops to promoting your music & making the most of your Twitter accounts.
We also heard from successful artists about their own musical journeys. Our special guests included Ben Howard, Aluna George, Wretch 32, Devlin, Angel, Japanese Popstars, Phil Kieran, Badly Drawn Boy and the Manic Street Preachers.
Tonight we hear from Tom Rean, from Droitwich, who runs Bank Records.
Tom has been instrumental in supporting a number of local artists - giving them a variety of opportunities, including breaking them out of their own areas.
