Ogre's musical relationship with Al Jourgensen started in 1987 when Ogre walked into a studio where Jourgensen was recording a song for his PTP project called Show Me Your Spine:

"I was doing a song for the RoboCop soundtrack as P.T.P., when Ogre walked in. I get pretty psychotic in the studio, and I didn't even know who he was, but somebody said he was some singer from somewhere, so I just said 'hey man, make yourself useful, get in here and sing.' "

-Al Jourgensen, December 9, 1989

Ogre was a touring member of Ministry beginning in 1987 in support of Land Of Rape And Honey through 1990 in support of The Mind Is A Terrible Thing To Taste. There is at least one bootleg CD from the 1987 tour, Flashback With Ogre, in which Smothered Hope is performed.

The official video In Case You Didn't Feel Like Showing Up (Live) documents the '89/'90 tour. A CD of this show (with 2 less songs than the video) is also available.

Ogre received writing credits on the album The Mind Is A Terrible Thing To Taste under his real name "K. Ogilvie" but he doesn't appear on any of the songs.

Ogre also appeared on another Jourgensen project in 1990, the Revolting Cocks. He sings on the song Get Down on the Beers, Steers, and Queers album.

Ogre can also be seen in the video for Stainless Steel Providers, although he did not perform on the song. The music video for Stainless Steel Providers was officially released on Wax Trax Black Box Vol. 2 VHS.

Ogre was responsible for Al Jourgensen being on the Rabies album, a move that caused tension between him and his Skinny Puppy bandmates. Additionally, Jourgensen's name appears before Key and Goettel on the Tin Omen single. Rabies was almost the last Skinny Puppy album.

As early as 1989, Ogre and Al Jourgensen had plans for a project called W.E.L.T. (When Everyone Learns the Truth). They recorded some demos, but the project never materialized. Jourgensen used a reworked version of one of the demos on the Minsitry album Filth Pig. Originally titled Noreen, the title was changed to The Fall. Around 1995, Ogre signed to American Recordings and along with Mark Walk, recorded songs under the name W.E.L.T. Due to problems with American Recordings the album wasn't released. It wouldn't be until 2001 that the music would be heard under the name ohGr, with the album title being Welt.

Thirteen years went by before Ogre worked with Ministry again. He performed at two shows on their 2003 tour. May 4 in New York City, NY and May 6 in Philadelphia, PA.
