But Paul's not too bothered, really. Even when giving us a wake-up call, he smiles like he's addressing Wembley Stadium. And certainly, this Liverpool band, just one single old, possess an attitude big enough to fill such a venue.
Like a Scouse Beastie Boys, Hollingsworth and co-vocalists James Bailas and Steve Bray swap verses and instruments, working the stage with total assurance. Sadly, though, there's a black hole at the centre of Airborne's self-belief where the tunes, grooves or ideas should be - even if they can do big-beat rampages like 'Book 'Em Danno' or 'CCTV' with the brute force of The Chemical Brothers and Primal Scream combined.
But that's the trouble. They just sound like another dance-rock band. Only 'State Of Me' - that rarest of things, a big-beat ballad - stays in the mind. All of which suggests Airborne are destined to remain resolutely earthbound.
