I am quite sure topics like compression and EQ get quickly lost on them so I would have to build their "sound" for them. Yes it induces some eye rolling but it is also good experience to have.

To that end, this article is a really interesting read:

It gives a bit of insight on the process of recording the Clash's self titled debut album. If you've heard it before, it almost sounds like they just plugged in their amps and made a record without thinking too much about how it was or wasn't going to sound.

In reality it wasn't an accident by any stretch of the imagination that it sounds the way it does. The article exposes the process as a fairly calculated and premeditated approach, even though it doesn't necessarily sound that way.
