"No Snow, No Show" for the Eskimo is a live album by The Mission released in 1993. It was recorded at two shows (*Wembley Arena, December 2, 1988 and **Manchester Apollo, March 15, 1990) for the BBC and was broadcast live by BBC Radio One.[1] These recordings were compiled by Wayne Hussey and Joe Gibb.[2][3] In 2008 all tracks, except for #8 and #9, and more from both concerts were released as part of the Live at the BBC boxset.

The Eskimo in the title refers to an early name for the die-hard Mission fans who would follow them around the world on tour. One member, Ramone, reported that when he was frisked by the border patrol in a European country, the guard shook his head at him and uttered something in his native language, which to Ramone sounded like Eskimo.[4][5]
