Anyway, he's got a very strange voice. He sings very Mid-tenorish a lot of the times like here:

Yeah, a lot of it is falsetto, but he uses his falsetto a lot in his Soft Machine days.
And here's Wyatt again, singing in his full voice:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a0O5YgTFE68#t=19m46s - What note does he hit on "Why"? And is that note at 19:56? G4?

And if you listen to him talk, he sounds like an HB:

Bizarre voice, but I like it. Sweating
