Jason, Kip and Jay have played together as Dianogah (pronounced Dye-ah-NO-gah) since January 1995. Dianogah's core instrumentation is as a trio of two bass guitarists and one drummer. They have toured the US extensively, traveled throughout Europe and played in South America.
qhnnnl features guest appearances by friend Andrew Bird on violin, Stephanie Morris (The Pawners' Society, Scotland Yard Gospel Choir), Billy Smith (Hubcap) and Mark Greenberg. qhnnnl shows that the band has progressed since previous efforts to make a mature, consistent album that visits the extremes of both tender and abrasive. For a trio consisting of two bassists and a drummer, Dianogah have proven that they are more than just an instrumental post-rock band with mathy time signatures. qhnnnl is their third full-length on Southern and is a camouflage affair with ventures into the dark and lighter spectrum of their songwriting. And what we can make out from qhnnnl is exactly that - they are mainly songwriters. Bassist Jay Ryan steps up to the mic on more than one occasion on this album. At other turns, he can be found shouting along with the rest of the band, "...this is how we fight!" Besides the addition of vocals, the band play with more ferociousness in their instrumental moments, such as on the heavy, thudding title track.

"Dianogah have two bassists, no guitarists and one drummer, but , in defiance of establisthed scientific principle, they're great." - The Sunday Times, Culture.
