Danish punk - that's awesome! Need to check that out.
Good blues - what blues isn't
I cut my blues listening teeth with the Alligator Records collections. Crucial (insert something here) Blues series - Crucial Guitar Blues, More Crucial Guitar Blues, Crucial Acoustic Blues, Crucial Harmonica Blues, Crucial Texas Blues, Crucial Slide Guitar Blues... The list goes on. Pretty sure I have all of them, and they all rock. Plus their anniversary collections are awesome too. their comps got me into Buddy Guy, Junior Wells, 'Steady Rollin' Bob Margolin, Lonnie Mack, Johnny Winter, Hound Dog Taylor, Son Seals, Lonnie Brooks, Fenton Robinson, James Cotton, Coco Montoya, the list goes on and on... Can't go wrong with any of the Kings - BB, Freddie, and Albert. And, check out Guitar Shorty. An unsung hero - word is a teenaged Jimi Hendrix (Jimmy James at that time) used to sneak out of his parents' house to see Guitar Shorty.
Check out the 'Bandana Blues' with Beardo and Spinner podcast. Comes out weekly and it's free. Been introduced to a lot that way as well. Spinner's from The Netherlands and has a lot of European blues acts. Cool stuff.
I would be remiss if I didn't mention Damon Fowler. Can't get his discs in record stores, at least not nationwide. You can order them from his brother at his website. Ask Red C who goes out to see him locally often. Unbelievable guitar player, great singer. Incredible emotion in his playing.
Edit - how the crap did I neglect to mention Robert Cray? Damn. Robert Cray is critical listening.
Clean inside, dirty outside is how like i like 'em!
