MOST kids leave the memories of their first band safely locked behind in their parents' garage. Not Silverchair. Since the release of its 1995 debut, "Frogstomp," which came out when its three members were 15, Silverchair has been the most popular rock band in its native Australia. But its U.S. sales have progressively diminished. "Frogstomp" sold 1.9 million, while the trio's last studio album, 2002's critically acclaimed "Diorama," sold only 77,000 copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

Like L7 with gender topics or Soul Asylum with the subject of a certain girlfriend, Australian newcomer Silverchair doesn't want to make an issue out of age. * "People should focus on our music, not on how old we are," Silverchair singer Daniel Johns says. Fair enough. After all, the trio's debut album, "Frogstomp," has garnered enough critical and commercial attention--only a month and a half after its U.S. release--that it's reasonable to try to ignore the age thing.
