Gordon Bell (born 24 July 1969) is a Scottish singer-songwriter based in Basel, Switzerland. He is a prolific songwriter having released nine albums in eight 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 critically acclaimed: 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. Gordon's music has been compared to a strange cross between fellow Glaswegians Ivor Cutler and Alex Harvey. He has a penchant for storytelling in his songs. Bell is also notorious for attracting hecklers to his concerts. He likes to call his particular genre Lounge Chanson. He is also lead singer with a tribute to The Sensational Alex Harvey Band - Not The Sensational Alex Harvey Band.
