"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. These recordings were compiled by Wayne Hussey and Joe Gibb. 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.
