He is prolific having released ten albums in as many years. Eight of those albums were under the pseudonym Gustav Bertha. His breakthrough fifth album My Life as a Dog (distributed in Switzerland through RecRec) was well received: Swiss newspaper Der Bund called it 'Wunderbar',. The Swiss press has also dubbed him with the slightly more ambiguous title, "The World's least-known Scot". He stopped working under the Gustav Bertha pseudonym in 2008 to write and play as Gordon Bell. Bell's music could be compared to a strange cross between fellow Glaswegians Ivor Cutler and Alex Harvey. He has a penchant for storytelling in his songs. He plays live with Kat Kunz on bass and Professor Ray Gunn on drums as Gordon Bell & The Sinking Ships. He is also lead singer with a tribute to The Sensational Alex Harvey Band - Not The Sensational Alex Harvey Band.
