Raw, raw, or RAW may refer to:
Raw (Jimmy Barnes album)
Raw is a 2001 album by Australian singer Jimmy Barnes. The album was recorded live at Colonial Stadium in Melbourne, Australia on 24 March 2001.
Raw (Crack the Sky album)
Raw, the seventh "proper" album (not counting compilations or live albums) from Crack the Sky, really is more of a John Palumbo solo album under the Crack the Sky banner. Other than Jamie LaRitz playing lead guitar, all of the musical parts were played by Palumbo. However, Raw is more "Rock" than Palumbo's solo efforts. The next Crack the Sky album, 1989's From the Greenhouse, saw the return of a number of veteran CTS members, most importantly guitarist Rick Witkowski.
Raw (The Alarm album)
Raw is the fifth and final studio album released by the original line-up of The Alarm. The band split up soon after the album was released. It was released in 1991 on IRS Records.
The album was released initially on vinyl LP, cassette and CD, reaching number 33 in the UK Albums Chart, and number 161 in the US Billboard 200.
An extended re-mastered version was released, including extra tracks.
Raw was a comics anthology edited by Art Spiegelman and Françoise Mouly and published by Mouly from 1980 to 1991. It was a flagship publication of the 1980s alternative comics movement, serving as a more intellectual counterpoint to Robert Crumb's visceral Weirdo, which followed squarely in the underground tradition of Zap and Arcade. Along with the more genre-oriented Heavy Metal it was also one of the main venues for European comics in the United States in its day.
Raw (music magazine)
Raw Magazine was founded in the summer of 1988 by Dante Bonutto, Malcolm Dome, Mark Putterford and Steve McTaggart and photographer Tony Mottram drafted in from Metal Hammer. They had come together on Metal Hammer magazine having split from Kerrang!, where Bonutto had been deputy-editor. The collective feeling there had been that Kerrang! was becoming too narrowly focused on Heavy Metal and that Metal Hammer would allow them more scope to explore other areas of Rock music. This quickly proved not to be the case and the idea for a new magazine was born, a title that would be a true Rock magazine, featuring Heavy Metal acts but not dominated by them.
To that end they teamed up with marketing man Pete Winkleman and created Raw alongside Phil Alexander, Kirk Blows, Dave Dickson, Dave Ling, Sylvie Simmons, Maura Sutton and Paul Suter, most of whom had also worked on Kerrang!.Under the byline of `RAW` Rock Alive Worldwide.
The first issue went on sale on August 31 of that year as a fortnightly publication featuring Ozzy on the cover tattooing the RAW logo on himself, photographed by Tony Mottram. RAW was based in London and steadily grew to become a serious rival to the more established Kerrang!. But within the year, EMAP publications, having failed in their bid to take over Kerrang!, decided to acquire Raw instead. The idea, at that stage, remained that the new magazine could overcome the heavyweight Kerrang!, and that EMAP's money and publishing clout would allow the Raw team to achieve this. In the end, though, EMAP simply bought Kerrang! wholesale.
The original Raw magazine, the staff, writers and photographers, remained largely intact until the end of 1989 when Dante Bonutto announced he was leaving. He had been poached as an A&R man by East West Records. The EMAP appointed publishing director, Dave Hepworth, was assigned to find a new editor. The obvious and most sensible choice would have been to appoint Bonutto's deputy, Malcolm Dome, a man who lived and breathed Hard Rock, had been there since its inception and knew virtually everything there was to know about the magazine and the music biz.
Curiously, though, Hepworth gave the job to his old pal Dave Henderson, who knew next to nothing about Rock music and whose only previous experience in the editor's chair had ended with the closure of a magazine. The beginning of 1990 ushered in the new regime and the slow decline of Raw as a viable alternative to Kerrang!. But as soon as Kerrang! became part of the EMAP stable of publications Raw's survival no longer mattered and despite changes of editor and editorial policy, making Raw a Britpop magazine in December 1995, it perished not long after.
In 1993 a weekly television programme named Raw Power was launched to accompany the magazine. It later changed its name to Noisy Mothers and was defunct in late 1995.

Raw meat is too powerful a stimulant, and even small bits generally injure, and sometimes kill, the leaves to which they are given: the aggregated masses of protoplasm become dingy or almost colourless, and present an unusual granular appearance, as is likewise the case with leaves which have been immersed in a very strong solution of carbonate of ammonia.
