Becks Fusions, The Daily Different

In the time since the Go Jo's, or when Pan's People twirled and flashed their knickers on Top of the Pops, or Bob Dylan adeptly changed his flashcards for his Subterranean Homesick Blues, and since MTV first shone shiny music videos from the screen in 1981, regards live music and art, times have changed.

What I want to know is, what were the first instances of music and art being performed live, and moreso, what instances exist of art being created simultaneously during a musical performance.

So during a recent weekend, I went on a 'field- trip' to Becks Fusions down in Manchester to start finding out.
