I love this so much!
Northern Quarter bar Compass have confirmed that they will throw an alternative Jubilee street party this Monday.
The quirky Manchester venue, which attracts hipsters like a craft beer festival at a former flannel shirt warehouse, is chosing to commemorate the 21 year and 5 month reign of Norway’s King Harald V.
“You’ve probably never heard of him”, said Compass manager Milo Popping.
“He’s a not very well-known King but he enjoys the laid-back math-rock of Minus The Bear, smokes Lucky Strikes and used to have a pretty gnarly beard. For people in the know he’s the man.”
“And it’s not a celebration as such”, continued Popping.
“It’s more just an opportunity to pay some respect to a Monarch who isn’t afraid to bust out a retro ’90s boombox and set up a Tumblr dedicated to Murder She Wrote. You don’t see our Queen doing that type of thing.”
