King Hammond is the Grammy award winning musician Nick Welsh. Nick started the King Hammond project in 1987 (while he was still a member of Bad Manners) he recorded 3 songs "Skaville UK", "King Hammond Shuffle" & "Right On King Hammond" for use on various Ska compilation albums with the idea of getting the King Hammond brand of music known on the Ska & Reggae scene. The plan worked very nicely for the King with the tracks getting radio play and good reviews in the press.

Nick was also the long-time bassist in reformed Selecter along with original band members Pauline Black & Neol Davies being in a band like the Selecter demands the commitment of time & energy so the King Hammond project took a back seat whilst the Selecter were touring & recording.

The next sighting of King Hammond was when while producing what turned out to be the last Judge Dread album "Dread, White & Blue" he & the judge recorded "Big Organ" a piece of psychedelic reggae, announcing to the world that 'King Hammond will play for you' at least one person must have taken this as being gospel because a few months after it's release Nick received a call from a promoter asking him if he would be interested in putting together a band to be the band behind Laurel Aitken and Dave Barker but also to perform as King Hammond at The Easter Ska Jam '98.
