In 1989Bernard Edwards produced the single Kiss You (Kiss Japan) for japanese pop-rock band TM Network . It appears on the LP Dress on which Nile Rodgers also produced two tracks (see post on Nile Rodgers above).
It is very interesting to note the differences between Bernard's and Nile's productions at this time for the same band. Bernard work is more rock funk oriented (it's not a surprise for those familiar with Nard's solo productions) than Nile's work. I must admit I prefer Bernard's production. It might be a "should have been a hit".

PAINT were(and maybe still is) a NYC rock band. According to PAINT they were the last production project of Bernard Edwards at the Power Station just before he passed away in 1996.
Paint talking about Bernard Edwards : "I
had the honor of being in the very last band he was producing. We were
called Paint and were tracking in studio A at the Power Station with
him. The album was never completed because of his untimely death.
Working with Bernard is something that I will hold close to my heart
"Ivan Walters Jr. son of Power Station studio head Ivan Walters Sr.
invited pal and resident producer Bernard Edwards down to CBGB's to
watch a band that he just started to manage. The band was Paint. Bernie
liked them and wanted to produce their first album and score the band a
record deal. It was Bernard's intention to study the demos and return to
the Power Station to polish and redo the songs in order to capture a
record deal. But unfortunately, Bernard passed away during a tour with
his band CHIC in Tokyo."
